Mixed Media Art Journal Love

newchallenge sssm

Hello, my lovely blog friends, welcome back! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, with Valentine’s Day in a few days we are getting all romantic and creating for someone we love. As red is the color of love we would like tho see a hint of that in your creation too! I am looking forward to seeing your creation for your Valentine.

I created an art journal page with my favorite mixed media elements.

It's always fun to experiment different medias and elements in the art journal. I sprayed the background of this page with Tim Holtz Distress Spray and ColorBox Screen Rounded Stencil.

The background also was stenciled with Gesso and Tim Holtz Layering stencil. I added a beautiful butterfly for decoration.

I really adore this sentiment so I stamped and embossed it with ColorBox black ink and ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder.

The die cut letters were colored with Tim Holtz Distress Paint and layered on top of the Tim Holtz Textured Surfaces and cheese cloth.

  11. What a great piece and a clever way to break up the "LOVE" sentiment with the heart for the letter O. I also really like the big polka dots in the background and how you combined those love sentiments with a creativity quote. They do go hand in hand and you did a great job on this, as always.
