Tonight I'm sharing with you an art journal page I finished up that includes lots of fabric and paint! I videotaped the entire process for a How-To video start to finish as my 2nd round submission for the May Arts Ribbonistas team.
The finished page looks like this :
And the video tutorial:
It's pretty straight forward as far as application but a few details and pointers never hurt!! The page is a base in my 8.5 x 5.5 mixed media journal. I cut a piece of May Arts 4 inch wide burlap to fit the page. Trim off one edge to give it a raggedy finish and gesso it onto the page. Use the gesso as an adhesive in some areas to keep it in place.
Then I dripped actual coffee over my page and spent a long time layering it up. The May Arts Sequin Heart was altered with some paint. I gave it some VLVS! bat wings and adhered it down.
The saying was punched using a Dymo Label Maker and I finished off the page with a little bit of ImagineCRAFTS Memento Luxe ink using a dauber through some punchinella.
That's it friends! Wish me luck :)
