It's Susanne today and I'm sharing an Art Journal step by step tutorial today.
I start by colouring my primed page (gesso) with DecoArt Fluid Acrylics Cobalt Teal Hue and Blue Green Light. I'm using a baby wipe to apply the paints.
While the paint is still wet, I make some marks with a pencil.
I use a piece of scap paper and apply Hansa Yellow Medium. I'm pressing the tag onto my page immediately. The result are some grungy green areas.
I repeat this step with Quinacridone Burnt Orange.
I use a black Faber-Castell Oil Pastel to draw a frame arround my page. I also add some ochre tones with an Oil Pastel.
Now it's time for some BLING! The new WOW! Sparkles are awesome giltters. I used DecoArt Media Gel Medium to add Santorini Glitter in some areas. I also used a black acrylic fineliner to make some more marks.
I add some texture with the script from the new stamp set "Wall Art".
I finish my page by adding my focal point: The bird on a branch. I embossed the bird with WOW! Hot Gossip Glitter and the branch with WOW! Velvet Glitter. The title "Free Bird" are some homemade stickers.
Here are some more close-ups:
