Enjoy The Ride Journal Page by Toni

Hi everyone, well it’s the last day to create something for Halloween and this really was an impromtu project. Playing in my art journal always gives me the freedom to try new things, not to stress just have fun and I hope this post encourages you to do that as well.

Keeping in  this month’s moodboard I came up with this page.  Mixed Media often intimidates many of us, including myself at times and that is why I push myself to “Play”. If you’ve ever been surfing the web and you see some artist with this unbelievable talent, I guarantee they will say, they “Play” with their paints, inks, paper just to see the effects they can get. I’m a firm believer “use it or lose it”… in other words the more you create and experiment the more accomplished you become. Layers upon layers of fun is what mixed media is all about, and sometimes you may come upon that so-called “Happy Accident”.  One technique I tried on this page was to add Seth Aptner’s Baked Enamel embossing to my wet AA Mud Texture Paste and see what kind of effect I would get, and yes I loved it. It bubbled and chipped and cracked and you know all that wonderful stuff. Something else I wanted to try was my Sorbet “Glass” to see if I can use it as an adhesive for my foiling and gilding flakes, and what do you know it worked.  Below I have a video so you can watch my creative process for this journal page.

So start some art journaling and just “Play” … Remember there is no need to be afraid of mixed media, just enjoy the ride.

AA Products Used:

Sorbet – Glass

Colorations- Sky, Juicy, Siesta Key

Minx Shimmering Inks-Panache, Decadent, Radiance

Stencil-Lattice
