Happy Weekend my artsy peeps! Today I’m sharing sort of a SNAP OUT OF IT journal page! LOL!
Y’all know y’all talk to yourselves in your journal too! So I opened up my “Cobblestone Lane” Haute Mess Journal and just went after it!
I applied a layer of molding paste to one of the canvas pages in the journal and allowed it to dry well. I also applied some molding paste though a brick stencil to give some heavy texture and anchor the bottom of the page. I then applied a thin layer of white gesso to the paint would flow well on the page.
Next I put down a stencil and applied some watered down “Torrid” Haute Mess paint, cleaning up the edges with a baby wipe and again allowed to dry well.
Next I laid down another part of the same stencil and applied some “Kiss and Don’t Tell” Haute Mess paint with a baby wipe (by dabbing it lightly) to give another layer.
For yet another layer, I did the same dabbing with a baby wipe with another part of the same stencil using Haute Mess “Bad & Tatted” and a baby wipe.
Finally I added some stickers for a title and inked the entire page to show off all the wonderful texture. I also took a sharpie and outlined parts of the stenciled numbers to make it pop a bit.
You can see the entire process in the process video below.
