today I will share with you my new art journal tutorial in whimsical style.
Weeks ago I started with a new serie of this cute little art journal pages.
15 cm x 15 cm.
I used on the background an old technique, called Bokeh.
The name Bokeh comes from the photography (the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light)
Lots of tutorials about this technique can you find on YouTube.
TIP: It`s always fun to try new techniques, but once in a while go back to the
beginning with a new perspective.
As a mixed media artist , I use a wide range of materials, which I have been
collected for a long time. Many mediums are still coming out of my painting period.
I chose a bright color scheme for my background which is for me a perfect combination to the
black and white photo. My art journal pages are always embellished with little animals
(butterfly, birds, bunny, or, or, or...) I think that`s just too cute by the little children.
I used for this page:
Ranger glossy special stamp paper.
Schmincke Acrylic Ink: Cobalt-blue, Titanium Yellow Green Shade,Scarlet, Brasil-brown
Posca Pen: white, sky-blue.
Gouache deep gold
Liquitex Aqua-green, Cadmium red
Twinkling H2Os: kiwi, guatamalan, hot cinnamon,
Pentel black brush
Prima modeling paste and black gesso.
black gesso the final touch that really set the tone for the page, this is my favorite step of the process.
Color Box Ink black
WOW clear embossing powder.
