Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone! Katie here for today's Mixed Media Monday post!
For today's project, I'm documenting how lucky I am and since it is Saint Patty's Day, I decided to use pretty much all green on my art journal page.
I didn't make this a tutorial, but I wanted to show you my process for creating this page. I started by sticking down an adhesive piece of canvas to my page and sketching out my design. I glued on a piece of book paper onto my face to add interest and also glued on gelli printed circles.
After I drew/colored in my face I placed a mask over her and stamped the background using the fun stars from the Hanging Stars stamps set. I love that there are different sizes of stars in that set, as well as different styles.
After stamping the stars, I colored the page with green Mister Huey spray and went around the gelli circles using acrylic silk paint.
Have you been think that the shape of the speech bubble looks a little familiar? It could be because it's actually the tree leaves from the Build A Scene stamp set. I stamped it with white gesso and it looks like a speech bubble to me!
My fellow design team members have been posting some pretty inspiring stuff lately. check out these posts-
