Susan K Weckesser Creative Team Mixed Media Inspire At Journal

Hi all

I have a new Journal page i created using DecoArt products and Susan K Weckesser Inc Stamps. I am still experimenting with textures and layering those textures up.

I wanted to show you haw to create layers using different stencils. So to start with i used a background stencil such as DecoArt  Pixleated and applied DecoArt White Modeling paste over the top which gives a lovely raised pattern when it dries. I then used the Doodle Stencil  and i applied white modeling paste to the number strip.

Next i used DecoArt Black Modeling paste with a Tim Holtz distress stencil and let it dry.

I stamped the In Circle Me  stamp down the center of the page and I then used a black marker pen to doodle on  some circles which i colored in using the Color Pop Mini Inks. I the used DecoArt Fluid Acrylic  Cobalt Teal Blue to pain over the background. I mixed it with water so it covered the pad easier. 

I then took the In Circle Me stamp and partially inked sections of the stamp before stamping it over the page.

I used the Grunge Fun Stamp set and stamped the stitching randomly around the page. 

I used Teal Metallic Lustre and rubbed it over the stenciling to bring out the detail and then i used the A Little Grunge Love and stamped the small arrow around the page and used the two hearts and stamped them onto smooth card. I inked around the edge of the stamp with Black Archival Ink and then colored them in with Color Pop Mini Inks.

I then used glue to stick the hearts down and once dry i added a mini stencil mask over the large ones and stamped the smaller ones with the Grunge Fun background stamp. I then took the little heart stamp and stamped it in between the larger hearts.

I used the Painted Sentiments stamps to add a couple of words 

Thank you for visiting

  5. Love this! I so want to start doing mixed media art journals!

  6. Oooh, I love this! I popped over to apologize to you...Thanks for your comment on my GG post. I realized I had not added the free stamp and have done so now. There was a mix-up in months with mine this month and last, and I completely forgot about it. Sorry about that! So if you go back to my Gecko Galz Fall Into Autumn post, you will find the free stamp now. (sigh)
