Hello, my friends. It’s that exciting time again where I get to share my CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017 entry. Being a part of this round robin has really helped me to stretch my creativity. What have you done lately to stretch your creativity?
For this CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017 entry I decided to use a page of Mixed Media Origins Nature by Tattered Angles. This paper is almost like fabric. It has a beautiful texture and it is strong. Adding wet media to this paper is no problem and that is why I chose to use it today.
Here is a video showing how I created the CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017 entry.
Some of the products used today were Mixed Media Origins Nature paper from Tattered Angels. One of my big go to products Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Iridescent Gold, Red Chillies, Crimson. I love how thick the Tattered Angels High Impact Paint is and how it adds that perfect touch, used; White and Black.
Loose or free form water coloring is so beautiful. When using the Mixed Media Origins Papers with Glimmer Mists you can get that beautiful water color effect with very little effort.
Spray Glimmer Mists into a palette and use a paint brush to add color where ever you want. Use water to dilute and move the color. A heat tool comes in handy to dry each layer of color.
When I started using the Tim Holtz stencil with a foam brush I found that I wasn’t getting the coverage I wanted. So I switched to a stiff stencil brush. Sometimes you have to switch tools to get the look you want.
The Vase of Roses image was something I found in my old digital image file folder and loved the boldness of the image. It seemed a perfect accent to the Nature paper with the roses highlighted in reds.
Every month I get a new journal as do 23 other artists. I hope you will take a look for the #CCBTRAVELINGARTJOURNAL tag to find all of the other CCB Traveling Art Journal August 2017 entries.
