So it’s the end of my mixed media kit and I’m still playing with all the yummy paints and chipboard! LOL! This week I got in my art journal and just played!
After I gessoed my journal page I reached for some gold crackle paste from my stash to give a good squishy layer to press that chipboard into to give it an embedded look.
Once I pressed the Creative Embellishments chipboard in I smoothed a bit of the paste over the top in a place or two to make the chipboard really feel like part of the page.
I set the page aside to let it dry overnight so the crackle could really emerge and develop.
Once the crackle developed and dried I got to work with all my mixed media goodies!
I pulled out the beautiful pink Prima acrylics in the February kit and lightly brushed them over the crazed page, even watering them down a bit to create a watercolor effect over the white portions of the page.
I dropped some black ink in areas and let it just find it’s way through the cracks and I inked the raised areas of the chipboard and the edges of the pages with a stamp pad.
I added back some of the gold shine by rubbing some areas with the gold prima wax.
Next I added some black graphite texture paste from my stash and sprinkled some gold glitter while it was still wet.
Finally I finished it all off with some emelishements, a cute Vintage Girl sticker raised with pop dots and a Tim Holtz paper doll die cut.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all do something beautiful today!!
