Happy Wednesday!! I’m breaking into my October mixed media kit and I’m so inspired! I just loved those wooden feathers included with that Lucky Dip Dream Catcher so I had to use them to the fullest extent!
For this journal entry, I’m working in a journal I made during a class I took from the super talented Jeanie Oliver so everything looks fabulous on these plaster covered pages! But I’ll share that little tid bit with you too. The pages in this journal are created using canvas painters drop cloth and I smeared thick plaster of Paris and allowed to dry. You can scratch into it while wet or press things into it to create unique textures but for this page it’s just plain plaster.
I dripped a drip of brown ink on it for some character.
Then I laid down one of those wooden feathers from the Lucky Dip Dream Catcher and used it like a mask. I sprayed the “Coco” NUVO Sparkle Spray over it and removed it to leave the image of the feather behind.
Then I took and old gift card and squirted a bit of the “Peacock” paint along the edge of it and dabbed it on the page to create the lines across the bottom of the feather.
Finally I attached some A Vintage Girl & Her Daughter Stickers from my stash using some pop dots for added dimension. I drew the strings for the lights to give them the appearance that they are actually hanging.
It’s a pretty simple page but very impactful. This technique could be used in so many ways though, for cards, scrapbook pages, wrapping paper, you name it! So much fun!
Well thank you for stopping by! I hope you have been inspired to create something beautiful today!
