I named this hot pink page Art Journal Evidence because when I was looking for a bold word to jump off the page, the ‘Evidence' stencil was handy and fit nicely.
Art Journal Evidence
I originally published this page a few years ago. It's one of my favorites. The original page came together quickly as it was a mop-up page. By that I mean a spare page that I cleaned my tools on, when working on other projects. Because it had lots of color and marks on from other projects, this rendition came together fast.
I’ve created a Dylusions Ink Sprays cheat sheet for newsletter subscribers. It explains how I apply my colors for blended backgrounds. Click here to get your copy!
Step-out Photos for Filming
When I filmed my Inventive Ink mixed media class with Craftsy, I recreated this page in the lesson on Dylusions Ink Sprays. When you show a page on video, it's helpful to have several “step out” photos that reveal the transformation. These are the samples I brought with me. It was great to be able to show these to the cameraman as the lesson progressed.
One of the reasons I like this page so much is how many layers it has on it. As you can see above, this one has stamps, sprays, inks, washi tape, diecuts, and even modeling paste. Don't hesitate to overlap layers when you are creating. Overlapping makes for some nice eye candy.
Mixed Media Art Membership Group
I host the Mixed Media Art Membership Group, a monthly membership that includes facilitated learning through a Project of the Month (with closed-captioned video instruction), Themed Challenge of the Month, a live Zoom Create-Along Session where we all work on our art together, and lots of resources such as the Project Vault, Technique Vault and Resource Library. Best of all is the supportive and inspiring community we enjoy in our private Facebook Group and the gated private forum on the site where I host the videos and resources.
The group is only open for new members a few times a year, so please add your name to the waiting list to be the first to know when the doors open again. Click here to add your name to the waiting list.
