How are you?
September is one of my favorite months of the year.
The nature begins to change color, temperature and weather.
Everything points to the coming autumn.
I love it when it gets dark in the evening, when
the candles and tiled stove burn, so cozy.
Time to sit comfortably on the bench and read a good book,
or create something beautiful.
I have for you a beginner photo layout tutorial with a photo from the actor Eddie Redmayne.
Super easy to do.
I started on a white cardstock paper 30 cm x 30 cm
with adding randomly Prima wax in the color vintage gold with help from my palett-knife.
After that I added randomly gold glitter and Stampendous mica fragments on my page.
I used gel medium as glue.
For the chipboards (spiral) I used Lindys spray as color. The colors are: steampunk sepia and
mission bells brown.
After drying, I added prima wax vintage gold and gold glitter to the chipboards.
Then I glued my focal point, i.e. the chipboards and the photo on my background.
For the next step I used "transparency".
For the embellishments I used Prima glass glitter in black and gold sequin,
splattering with the posca black pen and finally pencil lines on the edges.
Done.. that`s easy... or what do you think?
Art Words transparency
I am not ready yet...I have another layout for you:
with a children fashion magazine photo.
and stamps from my stash. My Ink is Archival Ink from Ranger.
After that I draw with a pencil rectangles and squares with the stencils:
after that I colored the rectangles and squares with pink watercolor.
I also added pink splatters.
Now it was time to color my chipboards with black gesso.
My chipboards are:
Filigree Lace A
After that I glued my two photos on the background
and I added randomly black carbon acrylic with my palett-knife.
With the left over paint I added black splatters.
My next step was glueing the chipboards on my page
and embellishing with transparencies:
Art Words transparency
and for my final touch black posca pen lines.
last but not least......
I have created an art journal page with a geli print image from the
First I started on a mixed media paper 30 cm x 24 cm from canson.
Then I glued with mod podge my focal point, the geli print image, and lots of small
collage paper and tissue paper on my background paper.
Then I added washi tape and stickers to my page.
After that it was time for a a bit of yellow acrylic color.
Now I added stamp images with the stamp:
Number Crunch stamps
and stamps from my stash.
The next step, black carbon acrylic color was applied with the palett-kife.
For my decoration I used silhouettes:
Magnolia Branch, black
which I outlined with a white posca pen,.
After that I added the transparency:
At the end I painted a big yellow acrylic number.
