Spellbinders | Art Journal Wish Upon A Star Spread. Video

Hello friends! I am very much fascinated by mixed media and I am always in awe when I see various mixed media projects, be it a canvas, a tag, an art journal or anything else. I’ve been secretly wanting to try my hand at mixed media projects and just get to know this style a little better.

Today I’d like to share a spread I created in my Art Journal (I started an art journal for just such experiments) featuring a Galaxy Background and Robo Star dies from Seth Apter.

PROJECT DETAILS

I still have a lot to learn when it comes to Mixed Media and I hope to take a class or two at the upcoming Winter CHA’17 show in Phoenix to improve my skills. In the mean time I had a blast creating this spread for my journal. I had the chance to once again practice making a galaxy background (I followed this sample I created last January – that is a video tutorial using inks from Altenew, but you can also use Distress inks and Watercolors for this), a larger one this time, and it was really fun to incorporate die cuts into this project.

I used Seth Apter Robo Stars dies to add white die cut stars to this project. Before die cutting, I added a layer of adhesive by using Scrapbook Adhesive sheets to turn these into stickers and make adhering them onto my project a simpler task.

Each star was outlined with a black pen, something I picked up from watching Seth himself, I think that really added a lot and helped these stars to stand out.
