As February is the month for celebrating Love I decided to make an Art Journal page inspired by Love.
Here are a few photographs and below you can watch my YouTube video where I show how it was created.
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.
I used Spectrum Aquatints in three shades for the background blended with water to give an ombre effect. Once dry I embossed the page with a Texture Embossing folder by Crafter's Companion called "Distress". I lightly sanded this with a sanding block and then carefully added Antique Linen Distress Ink just over the raised areas.
The stamp set is by Stampendous and called "Hummingbirds" I stamped the two birds and the flower spray onto card, coloured them with Spectrum Noire Sparkle Pens and the flowers with Pebeo Dyna Paint in 354 Irridescent Red Blue.
I cut a heart from a cereal box, painted it also with the Irridescent Red Blue and adhered a generic die-cut from my stash which I coloured gold using a Pentel Hybrid Dual Metallic Gel Pen.
I printed out the quote and coloured it with a yellow Faber Castel Big Brush Pitt Pen. Cut this into strips. Everything was adhered into place with Liquitex Matt Gel Medium then shaded with a grey IG4 Spectrum Noire Alcohol marker pen and highlighted with a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen.
