Hello Crafty friends, I am so excited to share with you how to create this extra slim art journal page with a using products from Art by Marlene's newest release.
Slim Art Journal for Art By Marlene - Mixed Media .
First I stamped my images from Home Alone Stamp Set with Versafine Onyx Black ink (materials linked below) on Bristol smooth white paper and colored them using my ZIG Brush Markers.
Pinks: 200 - 026 - 202 - 082 - 222 027
Browns: 999 065 076
Oranges & Yellows: 052 - 070 - 050 - 023 - 054
Greens: 041 - 045 - 053 - 046
Blues: 036 031 032
I then used my scissors and cut all around the images.
To create the background, You will need a watercolor paper scrap of paper that is 11inch X 3.25 inch. I used my Art by Marlene Watercolors and Brush to make few strokes of light blue and light green on the paper to create a sky and a ground.
I created few bricks with my white acrylic markers on the ground so it is not too empty on the bottom of my art journal page.
I then stacked my images starting with the adorable toucan, which I got from the recent release's paper elements booklet, and stacking houses behind him and moving up until they are all where I want them to be.
I started gluing the back most house with my ABM sticky glue and for the layer above it I backed with a single foam tape layer and then the front images with double layers of foam tape. This will give lovely variety of dimension on your page.
I choose couple more tiny elements from a previous peper elements booklet, a flower and few leaves, to decorate all around my houses.
Ifinished up by embillishing my art journal page with few enamel dosts.
I then punched a black cardstock paper with my ring-bound hole punch and cut it to 11 inch X 4.25 inch and glued my art journal page on top.
