can you believe it is September 1st!!! holy moly that was a fast summer wasn’t it… let’s hope for some beautiful temperatures to take us into the fall season!
today i am here to share with my creation for this months Mixed Media Monthly challenge #40 – vintage
Please note though I have received some of the products from Sizzix, The Crafter’s Workshop and Impression Obsession that I have used on this project, my opinions of the products are solely my own.
so before i go into the details of how i created this vintage art journal page i want to share a couple of things with you….. first off take a look at who our sponsor is this month!!!
okay now that those details are over let’s get into how i created my page
i first started by layering some texture paste through the stencil and let it dry.
i then rubbed some distress ink directly onto the paste and then blending it with the blending tool. i repeated this throughout the whole page
then removing the cover of the ink spray i flicked some from the end of the straw thingmajig!
i added some more water and watched the magic begin. loving the effect on this texture paste !!!
once my page was completely dry i added some modeling paste through the butterfly collage stencil
so while my paste was drying i cut some butterflies out of a vintage book
and applied some distress ink to them. i wasn’t sure yet which one i was going to use so did a few and figure i would add the extras to my diecut folders
i then decided to use this beauty of a quote direct to my page and how did i do that and get such a nice crisp image you ask??
why by using the stamp platform of course !! i love that i can put my art journal pages right in there and stamp!!!!
i then sewed around the outside of my page, added a few bits of torn vintage paper and for the final step i added some crackle glaze to bits of the page for the aged effect
and once again here you have it… my finished vintage art journal page for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #40!!!
don’t forget to play along with us and add your project HERE!! we love seeing what you create and we also love hearing what you think of our projects!
