Hey everyone! Suzanne here to share a little art journal inspiration featuring Art Anthology’s Stone Effects! I could never find a way to put this picture of my daughter looking through a telescope onto a scrapbook page so I decided to do an art journal page instead!
I like to begin my journal page with a layer of modeling paste as opposed to gesso; it lends extra texture and weight to the page. After the paste dries, I add color using Velvet in “Beyond the Reef.”
I layer paint and modeling pasted until I’m satisfied with color and texture. Once the background is dry-I knew I wanted somewhat of a galaxy look, so I added Stone Effects in “Lava” and “Sandstone” and let dry. On top of the Stone Effects, I added Clear Coat in “Splashed” and “Dazzle” for added sparkle!
Next, I add Wax Paste in “German Silver” and “Bronze” which really adds to the look I’m trying to achieve! I add stamping with more color and modeling paste until I’m happy with the colors and texture. Here are some closeups of the finished page!
chipboard embellishment, wire, fabric tulle, phrase stickers
