365 Art Journal page

Hi there...I am back again today to share some more shimmerz Paints in use!!!!  This time in my journal, which is an art journal / project life journal.  This page is recording a recent event in our family on February 18......and was fun to do.

Products I used

Mandarin Mai Tai
Anchors away

Razzle Dazzle Berry


Under the sea


The background is made with book pages, tissue paper and decoupage medium, with distress ink.

I used a mask with Mandarin Mai Tai and Chickadee making circles patterns in the background, Then drips with Anchors Away.  Between each layer I used Helmars Fixative Spray to stop the colours melting together when they get re-wet!  It kept the colours seperate nicely.  I added Razzle Dazzle Berry in more concentrated colour sprays and let that drip too, then went over the area behind the photo in Under the Sea.

I used some watercolour crayons to do the circles and some more Under the Sea to colour the centres.  I sprinkled over Sparkiliscious Enamelz over the entire area of the wet circles and embossed it making it look glossy and have a hard acrylic look. ( and ever so sparkly!!!!)

I added some pen in black and white, edging the text (which was stamped with Staz-on) just to add highlights and to neaten things up.  And its finished!  I stuck everything down and called it finished!

Get some Shimmerz into your art Journals girls.  So much fun.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

Have a good day!!!
