"Enjoy Every Moment" Mixed Media Art Journal Pages with the April Scraps of Elegance Kit

Welcome to my creative space!

I've created these shabby mixed media art journal pages featuring the Scraps of Elegance April Kit and have a process video tutorial to share filled with the techniques I used. The Creativity Add On is so much fun to work with. The 7gypsies Architextues Book pages are on a ring. I adore that you can mix and match the gorgeous page designs and that they can be easily removed for creating. I also enjoyed using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers and Prima Color Philosophy Ink (Color Add On) as "watercolors" to paint stamped floral images onto the background with the 49 and Market Enjoy Every Moment Stamp.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for Scraps of Elegance. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

In this process video tutorial learn how to:
~ Use ink and marker to watercolor a stamped background image
~ Color modeling paste
~ Create layered texture with stencils and modeling paste
~ Create visual interest with background stamping
~ Dry brush with gesso to highlight texture
~ Paint and ink chipboard for a grungy effect
~ Tear and ink edges
~ Add shadows around torn sentiment pieces with watercolor pencil
~ Add texture with glitter shards and Prills
