Art Journal – YES!

So very recently I went to Wichita Falls, Texas to Scrapbook N Such for a class (or four) with mixed media artist, Dina Wakley.  I am IMPRESSED!!!

She taught us several things over the few days, and I made several pages for my art journal!   I am so happy with what I’m learning.

Dina has a new line of media coming out very soon, and I’m really excited to be able to purchase it.

I bought the famous, and hard to get, Scribbly Birds stamp set and also some black gesso (what!!!?).

Here’s a little sampling of the pages I did during the classes.

 

Me with the fabulous Dina.

Then tonight, I decided to try out the lovely black gesso.  I’ve never used it before so I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do.  Here’s what I did.

First, I covered the two page spread with black gesso and let it dry.

Then I scraped on a few colors of acrylic paint.   Next, I used DecoArt Dimensional Effects texture paste through a baroque stencil to create some texture.

Finally, I used white Staz On to stamp one of the images from the Scribbly Birds stamp set as well as one of the quotes.

I like it so far. 🙂  What do you think?
