New Year, New Beginnings and a New You bring with it so many possibilities. This year is a great year for new color combinations and new adventures. To celebrate, I created a fun art journaling page in Wintermint Green. It’s a fresh color with a myriad of opportunities to be creative and several reasons to be inspired.
Paint art journal pages with wintermint green chalk based paint. Leave paint to dry and then stencil images on the background using Pearlescent Jade Brilliance ink and a sponge dauber.
Add Mint Green All-Purpose ink drops onto the stenciled background. Lightly mist with water and let the ink run. Heat set with a heat gun.
Mix a small amount of Pearlescent Jade Brilliance inker into embossing paste. Mix the paste until it has a consistent color and no more white is visible. Apply the colored paste through your stencil using a palette knife. TIP: Work in a single direction when applying paste to avoid the paste running underneath your stencil and causing smudges. Leave the stenciled images to dry completely. The Brilliance gives the paste a nice shimmer.
Spray scrap white cardstock with Electric Green irRESISTible Texture Spray and leave to dry. Punch 5mm circles out of the cardstock.
Adhere the textured dots to the center of your stenciled firework sprays. Unscrew the nozzle from the bottle and splatter small drops of irRESISTible onto the background. Leave to dry. Add definition to the stenciled fireworks images using a graphite pencil and White All-Purpose Ink applied with a small paintbrush.
Splatter Copper irRESISTible onto the background. Unscrew the lids for the irRESISTible Texture Sprays and use the applicator tubes from the bottles to color in chipboard numbers and leave to dry. Adhere the numbers and patterned paper strips to the journal page.
