My 1st Mixed Media Art Journal Page 53

Mona Pendleton | Thursday, October 27, 2011 @ 12:30 AM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a wonderful week! I'm really excited to have completed the first page of my newly started Art Journal. I've been wanting to take time to explore the world of Mixed Media and have finally made time to do so :) I've been admiring the work of a few various Mixed Media artists especially the ever so talented Roben-Marie. I stumbled upon her blog and instantly fell in love with her style so I signed up for an on-line workshop (Art Journal Conversion) and have been addicted ever since! If you are looking for either some amazing inspiration or are interested in learning some fun techniques, I highly recommend checking out what Roben-Marie has to offer! When you are there, please tell her I sent you :)

So here's Page 1 of my Art Journal:
I created this page, by mixing a boat load of various spays, inks, acrylic paints, molding paste and oil pastels. I love
I love the big purple heart! I used a Spellbinders heart die to make a stencil then using Liquitex Molding Paste, I spread on a "generous" amount to create the textured, 3D heart and various sized circles.
It wasn't so easy to capture the dimension in a photograph but it looks pretty neat up close and personal in my opinion :)
I had so much fun getting all inky and learning some new techniques. I can't wait to complete page 2! Thanks so much for looking ~ I hope you have a great day :) 
Be Sweet!

Supplies:
Stamps: PTI
Inks: too many to list
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue
Dies: Spellbinders Classic Heart, Grand Calibur
