Mixed Media Art Journal Page: Its Oddness Made it Good (with video)

Hello Friends!

Thank you for popping by and visiting my blog today.

I wanted to go back to collaging with magazines for today's page. More than anything else, it helps let my inner weird out. When I collage with stamps, digital or rubber, I tend to have a plan in my head, no matter how vague. With magazines, I have no idea what will emerge. I need to do it far more often. I love how it helps expand my ideas.

I also played around with adding a bit more texture to my background. After a little bit of play using tags, I found the balance I wanted to keep a deep, intense colour whilst introducing visual texture. Yes, I went retro and grabbed a sea sponge. I tried it out on a variety of colours and loved the look. And for this page, I went for blue! Well it is one of my favourites.

I also got to play with my sophisticated script stamp set from Concord & 9th. I saw Vicky P use it on one of her pages and had to have it. 

I even filmed the process. So if you fancy seeing how I put this page together, please sit back, take the weight of your feet and press the link below to take you to my youtube channel.

Hope you enjoyed.

Until next time

Love & Hugs
