Create Your Own World – Mixed Media Art Journal Page

2018-06-10 22-1460642158..jpg

Hello lovelies!!
My little Dylusions dyalog journal is almost full… can’t wait to do a flip-through video shortly. It is always so rewarding to see all the pages all together!

So today I added another quick page into my ‘backgrounds’ journal.

I used a simple concept… and have broken it down into basically 6 steps
1 – Gesso down – in this case, black gesso.


2 – Lift some back up through a stencil using baby wipes. This stencil is CELL THEORY by TCW


3 – Collage down – using Dina Wakley collage papers


4 – Stencil over – on the right the stencil is Donna Downey – GRASS stencil


5 – Choose a focal point – I chose the silhouette you can see in the above photo
6 – Shading, sentiment, detail and doodles – added shading to the figure, a small sentiment, doodles in paint pens and white sharpie details


Enjoy watching the complete video. It is quite short so won’t delay you too much
Have fun and hope you give this type of journal page a try.
