“Mixed Media Art Journal – Take 4”
Created by Sophia Vida
Journaling is a fun way to experiment with new things which is exactly what I did here. I recently bought a set of Golden Fluid Acrylic Paints and thought it would be fun to play with them in my journal. The colors were much brighter than I anticipated but I loved how they popped.
To tone it down a little, I decided to use my leaf stencil and a white paint marker to outline a few leaves. I then painted the leaves with white acrylic paint mixed with floating medium.
I added a little shading around the leaves with a watercolor sketch pencil. I also added accents with silver puff paint, gold metallic sharpie pen, green Sakura Gelly Roll pen, Sakura Micron pen #03 and assorted paint pens and that was it!
I highly recommend giving the Golden Fluid Acrylic Paints a try. They are so bold and bright and simply lots of fun.
Stay tuned as the journaling adventure continues…..
