Hi everyone, Josefine here and I wanted to share the next page in my mini art journal with you. If you haven’t seen the first two tutorials yet, you can find the first one, where I created the mini journal, here; and the first page here.
I started with adding a little bit more interest to the background using the Tri & Try Again foam stamp from Balzer Designs. The colors I used were rather translucent, so the shapes would blend into the existing background.
This page already had a circle shape on the right side. I wanted to enhance it a little more, so I stamped Nathalie’s Park Blvd stamp set. This set comes with a positive and a negative side, which allows you to layer it in different colors. First, I stamped the outlines in a bright yellow.
Then the inside in an orange. Can you see the little white mark on the side of the foam stamp? That’s my guideline, so both images are lined up. I added the same guideline to the outside foam stamp and marked the position on the page with a pencil. This way, it was super easy to line up the inside of the foam stamp.
I picked one of the mushrooms from the Woodland Mushrooms set from Red Tin Roof as my focal point. To add a variety of color to it, I brayered two colors for the cap and for the stem at the same time. This way, it looks like an ombre effect on both.
Side note: I always clean my brayer and foam stamps on a scrap piece of paper or on a new page in another art journal. This time, it ended up being a nearly finished art journal page. It looks like a scene from Alice in wonderland, don’t you think?
Thanks so much for stopping by. Don’t forget to check out all the other inspiration from the design team.
