Art Journal: Silently Correcting Your Grammar

silently correcting your grammar

Have a fun and quirky art journal page to share with you today. Using one of my fave VLVS! quote stamps in combination with collage elements from vintage en fountain pen magazines.

Textures and autumn colors. #workinprogress #texture #wip #onmydesk #showyourwork #process #mixedmediatechniques #mixedmedia #artistsofinstagram #artjournal #halloween #fallinspiration #artistofig #mixedmediaart #stencils #thecraftersworkshop

The background was an experiment with various textures and Tim Holtz Distress paints. I've also used the a ledger and script stencil from The Crafter's workshop. I kept layering and removing pants with a baby wipe to get a distressed and aged paper look.

Created some shadows with distress crayons and added some text and postage stamping plus white and gold spatters before adhering the collage images on top.

Detail close up. I also love that the vintage magazine image also has some grainy texture to it.

Definitely love how this whole page came together!

I love creating art journal pages and experimenting with back ground techniques.  

Well in the theme of writing and doing something new I have started a new studies this year through Coursera online studies which is an adventure! I get to use my fountain pens even more regularly now :) 

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
