Butterfly Squad creative team inspiration: Kathleen
Hi lovely Butterflies,
I told Butterfly Squad member Kathleen today, just how much out of this world her mixed media layering is to create dramatic art journaling spreads! Today again, she blows us away:
Hi hi sweet Butterflies, Kathleen here!
This time I made a vintage art journal page.
I hope you like the result so let’s play around and see how we get this page together.
Wow this pages had so much leftovers paint on the pages that I did not liked. So that I had to “hide”.
I started with a thick layer of modeling paste put on with a pallet knife. When it was dry I came back with a stencil and again with modeling paste.
I gave the structure some colour with a lot of water. Because there where a lot of paint splatters I went over the page with a brush to make it one smooth pages.
Oh boy…the next step was to paint it all with antiquing cream carbon black…
I removed the antiques cream with a baby wipe till I liked what I saw and sealed it with a varnish.
To make the stencil structure pop out a little more I painted it with some gold.
It’s time to make my focal point. I printed an old photo, cut it round with the circle stencil, I did the same with the cambric and I stamp a sinuosity circle. And I picked a quote from the mms2 sticker, cut a piece of paper and some cambric. I coloured all the white paper and cambric with the same colours I used before. I also distressed all the edges for it to look all together and that’s it.
That’s my pages for this time, I hope you like it.
See you back here soon!
