|"King of Kings" Mixed Media Art Journal Layout|
Let's jump right in with my mixed media art journal layout process:
|Start with a 12 x12 piece of canvas textured white cardstock.|
|Use a brush stroke to paint a black, semi-gloss background.|
|Create a textured backdrop using a brick wall stencil & gesso.|
|Position three pieces of paper on top of your background as shown above.|
|Use the Golden high flow acrylic paint to create paint splatters.|
|Loosen the cap of the Golden 'florescent pink' |
acrylic paint bottle. Apply paint straight from the bottle using a 'flicking' method.
|Remove the three pieces of paper.|
|Use a paint brush to lightly smear some of the paint on the brick.|
Dry with a heat gun.
|Position two more pieces of paper as shown above.|
|Apply 'indigo blue' paint in the same "flicking" motion,|
remove the two pieces of paper,
and lightly smear the 'indigo blue' on the brick. Dry completely.
|Flick & smear Golden 'dioxazine purple' acrylic paint. Dry Completely.|
Add more 'florescent pink'. Dry completely.
|Flick Golden 'green gold' acrylic paint. Dry completely.|
|Apply Golden 'iridescent' acrylic paint using a 'flicking' motion. Dry completely.|
|Apply gesso to Unique Laser Design's "Splats" shapes. Allow to dry.|
|Add Golden high flow acrylic paint to the ULD "Splats". Dry completely.|
|Adhere "Splats" to the background using matte medium.|
|Add smaller "Splats" on top of larger ones to give a nice layered look.|
|Outline all "Splats" with a black Uni-ball Signo pen.|
|Use gold foil Thickers to create your "King of Kings" sentiment.|
|Use matte medium to adhere the alphas to the background.|
|Free draw a crown on a 4 x 6 golden colored piece of card stock.|
|Trace the crown with a black Faber-Castell Pitt artist pen.|
|Add bling rhinestones to the crown.|
|Trace sentiment with a black Uni-ball Signo pen & silver Sakura Gelly Roll pen.|
|Distress the edges of the white card stock with black ink.|
|Close-up of the layers & texture.|
|Close-up of the sentiment.|
|And, VOILA' ~ King of Kings|
