In this post I will describe the process for an art journal page. The end result should look similar to this:
Items needed are:
Green colored spray ink
8 White Prima flowers
1 piece black card stock
Clock embossing folder
11 metal clock gear pieces
Gelato in red, gold and silver
Metallic rub-ons (Walnut)
Distress inks in Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserve & Festive Berries,
4 Die cut butterfly wings
Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powders in Orbit Olive Gold, Midnight Ruby, Kaiser Russet Red, Morning Glory Azure, and Hydrangea Blue Mauve
Find a page in the art journal that you will use for left over ink. Lay the damask stencil down and spray with the green ink. Now lift the stencil and go to the page you are working on and press ink side down. Let it dry. (Remember to clean the stencil)
While the page is drying grab a piece of black card stock and the embossing folder. Run it through your embossing unit and then cut out the clocks. Lightly color the clocks with the gold and silver gelatos use a light mist of water to blend.
While the clocks dry go back to the art journal (which should be dry, if not zap it with a heat tool to help it along). Latesty the brick patterned stencil on the page and apply the texture paste randomly on the page. Set aside to dry.
When the texture paste is dry use the red gelato and color over the brick pattern. Rub with your finger to blend. Next use the metallic rub-on (Walnut) and rub that over the red.
Next take the wings and glue them together to make the butterfly’s. Use the paint brush to apply the embossing fluidto the butterfly. Apply the embossing powders one at a time, heat setting each color before applying the next. For the body of the butterfly glue on a metal gear piece.
To color the white flowers, press the distress ink pads onto a non-stick surface and spray with water, drag the flowers through the ink. Let dry then glue two flowers together, glue a gear into the middle and glue rhinestone on top of the gear.
All of the pieces are now ready to arrange on the page as you wish. Experiment and have fun! If it doesn’t look the way you’d like, there is nothing wrong with covering the whole thing with gesso and start over.
