Art Journal

Good morning crafters.

We hope you have had a good weekend.

We had a good time at the Harrogate Show and it was lovely catching up with our
crafting friends.

Today we have a tutorial for you from our Erin.

Start with the Imagination Crafts (IC) Panel Patterned Card in green which is coated. This was glued to an art journal page, and using 3 stencils from IC apply clear and black gesso and let dry.

After the first layer of Gesso dried mist the entire page with Tattered Angels (TA) mist in Verdigris and let dry. Add a second layer of black and clear Gesso with the same 3 IC stencils.

After drying again mist the entire page with TA Mist in Olive Vine. Add in more clear and black Gesso with the same IC stencils - layer 3. 
Do not use a heat gun to dry it bubbles the Gesso.

After the Gesso dried add in another layer of TA mists in both Verdigris and Olive Vine.
 Look how the black Gesso pick up the shine in the mists and make it almost look gold!!

Added gold Sparkle Medium and the title. 
Use a black pen to trace the circles at the bottom left to help them pop. 
Also add black micro beads around the page and some IC stamps in black.

The gold title just hid in the page, so to make it pop trace the title with a thick black pen (Copic) 
Thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoyed the tutorial
