Hello Everyone, it’s my turn on the The Crafter’s Workshop blog today with another mixed media art journal page. Here in Australia winter has arrived and I thought I would create a layout that was inspired by “Coffee”- which I am sure most of you would agree is essential for a cold winters day.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
To start my pages I painted TCW9002 Black Gesso with a paint brush over both pages and dried with my heat tool.
Now to build my background…. I mixed TCW9023 Blue Jellybean and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint together and then used a brayer to apply to both my pages.
I mixed TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9020 Raspberry Sorbet Heavy Body Acrylic Paint together and using the brayer again applied to my pages.
Once I was finished with the colours I then mixed a small amount of water with TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and using a small paint brush, I splattered all over the pages.
I realized afterwards I may have gotten a little carried away with the paint so now I am using a baby wipe with TCW9002 Black Gesso and just dabbing around the edges.
Now for my stencil and I absolutely love this one! I used 6×6 TCW796 Fresh Coffee and stenciled “Fresh Brewed” for the top of my art journal page and “COFFEE” for the bottom of the page. I used a make up sponge and TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.
Next I stamped my coffee images using Tim Holtz stamp set Fresh Brewed Blueprint onto some white card and then used Distress Crayons to colour them.
I used one of the stars from TCW796 Fresh Coffee and my Distress Crayon to add to my ice coffee image.
To finish the pages I adhere all my coffee images using a liquid adhesive. I also added some shading using Black Soot Distress Crayon around the coffee cups.
Thanks for dropping and I look forward in sharing my next project with you soon xx
