Hey everyone, Mou here from colorhappycreations.com. I'm SO glad to be back for another term on the Design Memory Craft Core Design Team! Before I move on to the tutorial, I wanted to thank you all, our readers for taking part in the monthly Take the Challenge with Mou series over the last 3 years and a huge thanks to Design Memory Craft for sponsoring the challenges.
And now, as my first post for this term, I have an art journaling tutorial for you. So, let's get started!
Using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent Gel Medium, collage some found papers onto a old book spread. You can use any journal for this project. Let the gel medium dry thoroughly.
Apply Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accent Chalk Board Paint with a paint brush leaving out a few selected words from the text.
Once the Chalk Board Paint dries, circle the words and color around them with various shades of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Paper Crafter Crayons™, blending them as you go.
Apply some Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gesso with palette knife from Gelatos Tool Set.
Lay a pattern stencil from the 102 Stencil Collection on the left half of the page and apply a thin coat of Texture Luxe™ Gold with a palette knife. Repeat near the bottom right on the facing page. Let dry.
Add another layer of interest with the numeric stencil from the 301 Stencil Collection and Chalk Board Paint.
Rub some Texture Luxe™ Copper on both pages with your fingers.
Make marks and journal with the B tip pen from Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK to finish.
Here are some close-up shots of my art journal spread.
Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and are now inspired to give these COOL products a try!
