So I *normally* do the Build a Page challenge, and I still might, but today I bring to you my entry for the Prima Product Pick challenge!

Mixed Media Art Journal Share

Hi there!

Here is a mixed media art journal spread that I would like to share with you!  If you enjoy watching videos, you can check out the YouTube video for it here:

If you'd prefer still images, they are available below!

This is the full spread for this project.
The art journal is a 6x6 watercolor art journal.

My main colours are Cobalt and Iris Prima Color Bloom sprays.

This is the tissue paper that I randomly found at Michael's in their clearance section.
I love using it, and will likely run out of it sooner, rather than later.
This is the 13arts stencil I used on the tops and bottoms of the pages of this art journal spread.

I really enjoyed making this art journal spread and I hope you come back again soon!

Prima Build a Page Challenge Entry, April 2015

Thank you to Keren once again for designing a sketch I can get behind for the Prima B-A-P challenge for April. :)

My take of the sketch was done on a wooden mini canvas.
I kept the tones monochromatic using red as my base.

I added 3 types of glitter and used paper and embellishments from the Prima Princess collection as well as a resin frame.

For the painted background, I used acrylic paint as well as modelling paste to give it more texture.  I feel like the texture isn't well captured in the photos here, and I will try to add another more textural photo for you to see. :)

I also feel like it's missing dark accents, but I'm not sure if I should just go with black or use red to compliment the monochromatic feel... It's one of those things that if I thought about it too long, I'd never consider this finished, so I stopped thinking about it, and I'm calling it done (for now).

Thanks so much for dropping by!!
