Journal Steps with Inky Friends by Ellie Knol


A fun mixed media art journal page:
a step-by step from me, Ellie Knol today. 



Start by decoupaging a paper napkin to cardstock.
It's more about the colors than the images ... 



Sponge over a stencil with a terra red acrylic paint (Fresco Finish Brown Shed) as shown.  



Use the same stencil and apply modeling paste here and there. 




While the modeling paste is still wet, sprinkle a teal embossing (Verdigris from Ranger) on a few of the numbers, here and there, and heat emboss it. 
Now the numbers are in 3 different colors... a bit much, 



.. so, apply white gesso with your fingers and knock down areas and in different directions.



Create a 'Frame' by tearing the edges and sponging it with Cracked Pistachio Distress and Distress Oxide inks. 


Stamp in the background with the Grungy Swirls stamp and Old Book Page script with a dark brown. 



Stamp the butterflies on separate cardstock with a dark brown stamping ink, fussycut them and add a little color to make them pop. Stamp the Old Book Page script onto the butterflies with a dark brown ink as well. 


Adhere a piece of torn edge as a base for the butterflies...  


.. and adhere the butterflies with a tiny piece of 3D tape.
Splatter white and terra red to finish it off. 


Easy right? It's like following a recipe.
