Karen here today from Craftily Yours! I’m loving playing with the Art Journal line from Ilse and Charlene! It’s so versatile. The line can be used for journaling, scrapbooking and cardmaking too! Today, I created a fun card using the line.
It’s Tanja here and today I would like to show you the step by step tutorial for this Art Journal Page.
Step 1: Creating the Basic Texture
apply Prima Marketing transparent 3D Matte Gel through the heart portion of the Make your Mark stencil onto a panel of watercolor paper
Step 2: Adding Color and more Texture
adhere some torn washi tape strips to the page
let Distress Stains (Cracked Pistachio, Gathered Twigs) drip down the page
add some Prima Marketing white Heavy Gesso to random spots
apply Distress Oxide Ink Black Soot to the xo part of the Make your Mark stencil with a Mini Ink Blending Tool
ink up the edges with that same black ink
water-down some of the black ink and add some splatters
Step 3: Adding a Die Cut and a Sentiment
cut out the beautiful Mandala from kraft cardstock
add Prima Marketing Metallique Wax Bronze Age and white gesso to grunge it up a little
the sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Big Chat Sticker set
I hope you got inspired.
