I created this art journal page for a challenge over at Scrap mixers.  The challenge was to define scrapmixing using six different patterned papers.

  • to create the back ground I sprayed three different colors of dylusions  inkspray.  then added some water to mix and blotted with a paper towel
  • then i used a stencil to spray water through to remove some of the ink
  • I built up layers of texture by spraying through three diferent stencils with the same color of spray
  • I used matte medium to adhere the patterned papers.
  • For some additional texture I added some transparent texture paste with a Tim Holtz stencil.  then layered tissue paper over it and adhered with the matte medium
  • I stamped several image on the background using archival ink.
  • The girl at the bottom is my daughters artwork printed on thin cardstock and adhered with matte medium
  • The title was create with stickers, pen and diecuts.
  • I used a prima finnabair stamp to create a border around the edges
  • For some added dimension I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Heidi Swapp gold art screen ink

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my artwork.  I love comments so please let me know what you think.  Also head on over to scrapmixers and give this challenge a try!
