I started my first art journal to start off the new year. I've wanted to venture out more into mix media in my work for sometime now. There's something so exciting about trying new forms of art that keeps my soul happy. I've been collecting mix media products to play with and watching YouTube videos of all the best designers when ever I could. Meeting Ania Dabrowska also know as Finn or Finnabair at CHA and watching her demonstrate her new line of mix media products was diffidently a highlight for me. I also got to meet another artist I admire Mister Tim Holtz. I think both of these artists are crazy talented and inspiring.
I know I usually take a show pictures here of my processes as I go along but this time I found myself totally immersed in the techniques of using 3D gel and distress spray stains. That and my fingers were covered in goodness to messy to touch a camera with. You'll have to stay tune and I'll try to take pictures next time. I will tell you thought the products I used here and tell you they can be found in my Artfire store.
I used 3D Gloss Gel , paper from the collection Romance Novel by Prima, Chipboard from Dusty Attic, Ranger Distress Spray Stains, Crafter workshop template, Mix Media Art Journal, Metallic Rub-on paint, white gesso, and Wild Orchid roses.
Thank you for following along on my journey,
