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.

Have fun!

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!

Cheers :)
