Art journal spread „Find Beauty“ – STAMPlorations

Hello everyone, it´s my turn today again to share another mixed media tutorial with you on STAMPlorations blog. For this month´s post, I´ve prepared an art journal spread with steps. I hope you like it!

I aimed for a light and happy spring feel page  and here is what it looks like:

And now to the steps:

Step 1: Start by adhering music note sheets onto the art journal with a varnish or a paper adhesive.

 Step 2: Apply some gesso onto the music note sheets with a palette knife to create a slightly softer and lighter look.

Step 3: Take the Rose Garden stencil and some Distress Paints (worn lipstick, picked raspberry and twisted citron tones) and apply the paints thru the stencil onto the journal spread. I used two pink tones on the roses very randomly and created lighter and darker toned petals that way.

Step 4: Apply paint droplets onto the background with same paint tones using a water tank brush. Step 5: Fussy cut butterflies and adhere to the page, add a stamped sentiment with black stamp ink.
Step 6: Take a tag die cut die and use it as a drawing guide and draw a tag pattern with a black pen onto the background.
Step 7: Color the tags with yellow acrylic paint and let dry properly.
Step 8: Add outlining to the stenciled patterns with a black pen.
Step 9: Add a quote or journaling to the tags and finish off with black ink splatters.
Here are some details of the finished journal spread.

I hope you enjoyed today´s step-by-step and get inspired to play in your art journal a little! Have fun creating!!
