I love workshops, and learning new techniques. So when Tangie Baxter offered The Gypsy Diaries Mixed Media Worskhop at Scrapbookgraphics, I knew I had to play along. The workshop includes prompts, videos, downloadable art, and a private class site.
This is something new for me, an art journal that is entirely cut-and-paste. While I've done loads of digital art journaling pages, this is something new, and I am having so much fun.
After watching one of the videos, I tried my hand at turning an old turquoise-blue mystery novel into a vintage-looking journal. I had a blast dipping my fingers into the paint to add a patina. Then I used a stencil and embossing powder to decorate the cover, before adding wings, a title frame and charm.
I can't wait to start on the inside.
Materials: acrylic paints, Show-Offs stencil, Zing embossing powder, Tattered Angels glitter spray, Martha Stewart glitter glue; Tim Holtz grunge board wings and mini frame; and an Explorer charm.
