Hello and happy Thursday everyone!!! Today I am sharing an art journal page I created for Sassy Scrappers using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers and Dylusions Paints. Make sure you check out the video at the end of the blog!!
When I started my page, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do but after using the magical shakers for my background I decided to do an under water theme….. I’m not much of an artist when it comes to drawing and this was my first time drawing a mermaid (will definitely need to to practice some more lol) she isn’t perfect but I wanted to show some different techniques when using the shakers.
So to build the background I used Polka Purple, Guten Tag Teal, Lederhosen Laurel and Bavarian Blue. I sprinkled randomly onto my page and spritz with water. I did use a heat gun to dry but if you have the time, let it air dry as the results are amazing.
I then decided that I wanted to do a bit more to the background so using a wet paint brush I played a little more with the shakers until I was happy.
Next I used Dylusions Paint Dirty Martini and Fresh Lime to paint some seaweed and used a paint pen to draw some weeds. Then I mixed a small amount of water to White Linen to splatter onto the background.
To finish off the page I added some sparkle using a glitter glue – you can use Ranger Diamond Stickles and just like that my page was finished.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope I have inspired you to create something special!!!
