Hey there my crafty followers!!! Today I am up on the Helmar blog with this art journal page.
To create the background I applied some acrylic paint to some canvas paper
Next I stamped 49 and Market Going In Circles Stamp with Versafine. This is a small stamp so used it a few times till the cardstock was covered.
I then sealed the cardstock with Helmar Crystal Kote Fixative Spray. I am an impatient scrapper so I used my heat gun to make sure the fixative was dry but you could set it a side for a few minutes.
I then applied my Distress Oxide directly onto my page and sprayed with water until I was happy with the effect. Then dried it with my heat gun.
To adhere my page to my art journal, I used Helmar Spray Adhesive. I always use a scrap piece of paper under the piece I am spraying, this just protects my work surface. I left the sprayed cardstock for about 2 minutes and then placed it in my art journal.
I stamped the paint splatters using Darkroom Door Paint Splats stamp set and then choose a few of the splats to add Helmar Tacky Craft Glue. Then sprinkled the glitter on top.
I also used Darkroom Door’s Artist’s Palette stamp set for the paint, brushes and the sentiment. I used watercolour paints to add colour and then adhered them using Helmar Acid Free Glue.
And here is the finished page
Thanks for dropping xx
