DeeDee is starting to put up videos of the Art journal classes for those who are local that missed a class or two or people from other parts of the country or the world can take. The video classes are really cheap. It is $10 for both classes for the month. That's $5 a class! Got to http://deedeecatron.com/ or UmWowStudio for more information or if you want to purchase(found under online workshops in UmWowStudio).
So to be fair I can't really explain the process of the background we did. but It was fun and I got to work with big kid paints. LOL We used Blicks student grade acrylics. Which is something new for me to use since I have always used craft paint, as it way cheaper than the other acrylic paints. Though I have been tempted at time when at Michael's to get some of the Liquidtex Basics paint when they are on sale, but pass them by. lol .
I used the chunky heart stencil from UmWowStudio. And its kinda looking ugly I will admit. lol But it does get better!
See looking better!
Looking even better with mark making and stamps from Viva Lss VegaStamps!
Then I took it home and added some stuff to the page to finish it off and cut to fit in my journal.
I took a white chalk paint pen and added some dots the negative parts of the chevron. i also tracked a few hearts where the stencil was. The globe Was sent to be me by Dede before I had gotten my Cameo (and no its still not set up yet. i really really need to get a long desk or tables and other organization stuff! But it is registered!) I sprayed it with London Blue Dylusion spray and then set it with hair spray so when I glued it on the page the glue wouldn't go onto the awesome background and make me cry. I did forget to spray the back of the globe, but it wasn't too bad. I then found my Dymo label and typed out color my world with it and stuck it on the page.
