Art Journal Page – Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often

Edited on 4/4/2019
I am so thrilled that this card won the following awards.
This is no doubt double excitements.

Hi Stamping Friends,
It’s time to play along with Happy Little Stampers (HLS) Mixed Media Challenge again. The January Challenge Theme is LAYERS which I think most Mixed Media players are familiar with.

For more details and other DTs’ inspirations, please check out the Challenge Blog. Anything mixed media could be linked up to our challenge as long as it follows our theme.

Starting from 2019, I decided to challenge myself to create art journal pages as my DT artwork for HLS MM Challenge. This is my very first art journal page. Yay, I made it and I like it. I hope I and all my stamping friends will live well, love often and laugh much in 2019.

Hope this art journal page is eye-pleasing and inspirational to you. Please drop me a note if you like it. Thanks for stopping by and wish you a great day.

Art Journal Details
1. Apply a thin layer of white gesso to prime the art journal page. After dry, apply various acrylic paints (by Dina Wakley) randomly on page.

2. Adhere some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Wrap by Gel Medium on page.

3. Stamp Lonely Girl (Dina Wakley) on white tissue paper, tear it and glue to the page with Gel Medium.
4. Tape various washi tapes on four sides of the page.

5. Stamp texts (Simon Says Stamp) with Archival Ink directly on page.

6. Apply white embossing paste over stencils randomly on page to create extra texture. Voila!
