probably some of you are already in stress with the last preparations for the festive
That's why I want to keep this blog post for the company Scrap Fx Australia short.
I have for you as inspiration an art journal page in grungy style.
My photo is from Pixabay free photo images.
I created this page on DIN 4 watercolor paper.
At the moment my favorite medium is still the baked texture from Seth Apter.
First I added a layer acrylic paint in the color burnt umber.
After my first layer was dry, I repeated this step three times.
My next step was adding distress wax with my finger.
A little bit here and there.
After that I applied a thick layer of acrylic paint, in the color dark turquise.
I let everything dry well.
Then I wiped over the surface with a kitchen cloth and I removed the color dark turquise and the wax.
After that I put a thin layer of acrylic liquid orange-red over it, and immediately wiped it off with a baby wipe.
Now, it was time for my stamp images.
I started with blue Archival Ink and the number crunch stamp.
After that, I stamped with the ink versafine black and one of my favorite stamp from Scrap Fx "Squared stamp"
after that I covered my stamp image with the baked texture "Taos Sunset" from Seth Apter.
The baked texture needs a good heat with the embossing tool.
Under the beautiful silhouette "Fresh Flower Black" on the right side of my page,
I added acrylic paint in the color dark turquise and yellow ochre to the
flower buds stencil, also one of my favorite stencils from Scrap Fx.
After that I stamped with another company stamp.
I splattered with black acrylic paint and I added an acrylic color layer in black
but this time with the palett-knife.
I glued the title from Tim Holtz, my photo and the flower silhouette on my background.
A little bit grungyness to my edges and a little bit white color and I was done.

I wish you all a blessed Christmas.
Hopefully I will meet you on my last blog post of 2019 on December 29th.
