Mixed Media Art Journal


“Mixed Media Art Journal”
Created by Sophia Vida

I started a small art journal that measures 5.5″ x 8″ and this is my opening page. I found this image in an old “Romantic Homes” Magazines that had an article about outdoor weddings at home which I thought was a great idea.

I gave the page a coat of gesso and then painted the background with gelatos. I added a script stamp, drew a few hearts and wrote a sentiment that I highlighted with Sakura Gelly Roll pens. Next I sprayed the page with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Once this was dry, I stenciled my design in the top left corner using blue, green and white acrylic paints. I accented the hearts with Ranger Glossy Accents.

Using a small punch, I adhered a few butterflies that I made with green cardstock. I outlined them with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen and highlighted them with Stardust Stickles.

Last I adhered my image and outlined her with a metallic Silver Sharpie pen and highlighted her bouquet with Stickles. And that was it!!

I’ll continue to post pages as my journaling adventure continues so stay tuned…..
