Am back from my awesome trip to the North east..
Here's an art journal layout I've made by taking inspiration from the moodboard for Lulupu's third birthday.. I got this paper accents keepsake book from Lulupu.. so I thought I should make a layout on their birthday month :)
Steps on how to:
I pasted a page from an old novel to begin with the bg.
Gave a wash of gesso to push it to the bg..
Using mini ink blending tool & foam, I applied pink & flesh tint acrylic colours. .
I've used mini blazonry stencil & gold acrylic colours for some interest in bg followed by modelling paste through Tim Holtz Rays & Prima finnabair stencil..
Some script stamping with Royal Windsor & french rose bg stamps. .
Gave vintage photo DI all around to give more definition. .
Lots of white splashes with watered gesso & white acrylic color..
For the elements, I drew the clouds in watercolour paper using water colour pencils & Koi waterbrush(am using it for the first time & am loving it) & fussy cut them..
I pasted a very old book page onto scrap cardstock, drew & cut the balloon from it..
Colored with salty ocean DI & applied gel medium over it..
Faux stitches & polka dots drawn with white gel pen..
Tied a string around it & pasted over the bg with foam squares to add dimension. .
The sentiment was drawn & fussy cut out of black cardstock. .
Pasted everything with Aleene's tacky glue..
Done. Hope you liked it.
Do lemme know your comments. They mean a lot.
Create. Have fun.
Linking this to,
I've taken loads of inspiration from the mood board..
The soft pastel like color scheme attracted me the most... pinks & peaches for the bg..
I've also made my balloon like the ones in the pic.. have used gold too..
I've also drawn my sentiment scripts..
For the number 3
part, I've added 3 clouds & used 3 types of stencils..
