Touch the sky - mixed media art journal spread
Guest designer Melina here.
Today I have a step-by-step tutorial to share with you.
First I put gesso on the spread.
I started with the background using distress crayons that I blended out
with a wet finger. Then I took a stencil and removed the color in some places
using a baby wipe. After that some background stamping with grey Versafine ink.
In the next step I stamped three faces on watercolor paper and then drew
some whimsical figures. I painted the dresses with watercolor.
I cut out my little ladies and did some doodling on their dresses with a black
permanent pen. Also used a white pen and punched out three hearts that
I glued down.
I stamped some wings and cut them out as well. I glued the ladies and the
wings to the spread with gel medium. I finished by doodling their hair and
adding the quote.
Hope you liked my whimsical spread and thanks for stopping by!
