Hi everyone, Toni here with a new journal page for Art Anthology. Art journaling can be very liberating. It provides an outlet to try out new techniques, some quick creating if need be, a place to jot down your thoughts etc. You can make your own art journal book if you don't happen to have one, by using an old book, gluing pages together to create a strong substrate. There are many YOUTUBE tutorials for your viewing.
I began my background with texture provided by T!m's 3D Texture Fades Cogs and Gears and I ripped the papers and applied them randomly to the background. I also then applied dry wall tape in pieces to the background and then prepped it with white gesso.
Paints that I used are from Art Anthology's Velvet line and also their Patina and Rust Texture Paste Sets. You can purchase these HERE.
Cogs and gears were diecut from chipboard and rusted to the background.
T!'m's Ideology Paper Dolls were added to the page and shadowed with charcoal pencil.
Washi Tape and random ephemera were also added as a backdrop under my paper dolls as well as torn muslin that was stamped with a script stamp and black archival ink.
Hoping you enjoyed this post and would love to hear your comments. For your pleasure I have included a step x step tutorial below. Happy creating xoxo Toni
