Mixed Media Monday: How to create beautiful Art Journal Pages - Tutorial

Hi Everyone! It's Tracey back with a new project and process video tutorial. The April Scraps of Elegance Creativity Add On is so much fun to work with. I've created a set of art journal pages with the 7gypsies Architextues Book. I adore that you can mix and match the gorgeous page designs and that they can be easily removed for creating. I also enjoyed using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers and Prima Color Philosophy Ink (Color Add On) as "watercolors" to paint stamped floral images onto the background with the 49 and Market Enjoy Every Moment Stamp.

In this process video tutorial learn how to:
~ Use ink and marker to watercolor a stamped background image
~ Color modeling paste
~ Create layered texture with stencils and modeling paste
~ Create visual interest with background stamping
~ Dry brush with gesso to highlight texture
~ Paint and ink chipboard for a grungy effect
~ Tear and ink edges
~ Add shadows around torn sentiment pieces with watercolor pencil
~ Add texture with glitter shards and Prills
