I took an old book that I wanted to make into an Art Journal and covered it roughly with texture paste coloured with blue, yellow and red acrylic paint. I was not precise in applying the texture paste I just slapped it on randomly using a palette knife.
I added green coloured texture paste through a stencil to add more texture.
For more visual interest once the paste was dry I stamped randomly over the cover. Then because I find it hard to stop I added circles in dark blue and white and splattered watered down orange paint over the whole cover.
I then took the chipboard from Imagine If and altered it using paint and paper.
Again to tie it in I added some stamping and some orange paint splatters.
The female figure I covered in book paper and used spray, crackle paint and stamping to decorate her. The wings I painted with white gesso then I sprayed and stamped them. The heart was painted with white gesso then red paint and I stamped into using bubble wrap.
I hope this has given you some ideas for different ways to use the amazing chipboard pieces and the stencil that Jo stocks at Imagine If. both on line and at her physical store in Morrinsville. Jo also stocks the paints and mediums required for altered art, mixed media and art journaling. Until next time Happy Crafting.
