Gorgeous Art Journal Page by Farrel Tailor

 Happy Sunday Everyone!!! 
Farrel here to share with you my latest mixed media art journal page. So sit back and relax while I step you through the process in creating this very fun page.

I started off by tearing some paper out of an old book and adhered it with Matt Gel Medium and then applied a light coat of White Heavy Gesso all over.

Once the gesso was dry, I then added some different patterned strips of washi tape in black and white..after realising that I needed the washi tape to be sealed for the next step, I and then applied another coat of White Heavy Gesso. Next I added Indigo Colour Spray using a paint brush and used water to let the colour run across the page.

I dried the spray with my heat gun and then repeated the process but used Grape Colour Spray . I also used the excess off my brush to add some splatters all over.

I added some random stamping using a black archival ink.

The next I used my black archival ink and dabbed through a stencil. I wanted to heat emboss the image so I started with using Steel Colour Embossing Powder  but it was a little too light so I went over it using Dusty Charcoal Colour Embossing Powder.

My next step was to cover my ScrapFx chipboard with Black Heavy Gesso. Once it was dry I then sprayed Royalty Colour Shimmer Spray  all over for that extra sparkle!!

The last step was to cover my stencil with White Heavy Gesso...why??? I felt the colour and stamping in the background was taking the focus away my stencil. Before it dried I then used a baby wipe to remove the excess off the embossing areas.

And there you have it another art journal page!!!
Hopefully I have inspired you to create something gorgeous today.

Until next time - Happy Creating xx
