About Me

EXPLORING ART is my thing - I love crafting - Altering things, Mixed-Media, Art Journalling and Card Making.

I would probably say my favourite styles of crafting are vintage, grunge, shabby chic and; Steam Punk.

I hope you will subscribe to my YouTube Channel & my Blog and that you find something to inspire you.

Mixed-Media Art Journal Collage

I wanted to do something different with my Art Journal so I thought I would try some collage.
I found a picture I liked in a newspaper and fussy cut it out.
I started the page with a stenciled background using Inka Gold in a mixture of Lava Red and Violet mixed together then some gold through a different stencil.  I toned this down with watered down wash of white Gesso.
Before I glued down my image I added a stamped butterfly wing which I coloured with Derwent Inktense Pencils. I added some shading around the edge of the image and also some doodling. I gave her a crown of chipboard coloured with Inka Gold in Bronze. I wrote my caption aroud the image with a Black Faber Castelle Pitt Pen.

I have a video of the creation process below.
