Free-form ATC – The Summer Triangle

Hello, it’s Jinal! it’s October and I am here with another tutorial with another form of mixed media.

ATC are always fun, what excites me more that there are so many elements one can add in these cute, tiny form… ATC are usually limited to 2.5*3.5 card however free-form ATC gives you the opportunity to play around with different shapes

These are my ‘The Summer Triangle’ literally inspired by the constellation. It is actually the amalgamation of stars from three separate constellation i.e. they form a giant triangle in the sky composed of three bright stars – Vega, Altair and Deneb

STEPS TO MAKE THIS:

STEP 1: Prime it with white gesso, allow it to dry… Then apply chalk paints of your choice.

STEP 2: Use reverse stenciling technique when one of the star is still drying.. pick up the extra colour with baby-wipes…. you can even use background stamps to add texture.

STEP 3: on the branches/leaves elements painted with chalk paint and then used WOW embossing powder over it for the grungy and shiny effect.

STEP 4: Layer it with your embellishments- chipboards, moulds, critters, hand-made flowers.

Hope you liked my make for this month…

Art Journal Pages

Holla! Jinal Savla here…This month I have been experimenting with art journal and various techniques of mixed media… Let me take you through the process.

Step 1: Glued down 2 pages together to create a slightly thicker base and then primed it with Little Birdie’s white gesso.

Step 2: Sprinkled water randomly on the page. Used Vibrant shade chalk paints from the brand with combination of pink, orange, and yellow and blended them together.

Step 3: Used reverse stenciling effect. Before the paint dries I used a stencil to lift some paint off the page with a baby wipe.

Step 4: To add more texture, stamped certain designs/texture randomly to get the depth using LB – pigmented dye ink pad…also stamped ‘Dream’ on the right side of the page.

Step 5: Used Little Birdie’s Gold leaf flakes along with gliding glue to achieve the shimmer sentiment- ‘Shine’

Step 6: Die cut flowers using LB thin cut dies, watercoloured the inside, stuck it slightly keeping one over the other and doodled the outline with 0.5 marker.

Step 7: Added sentiments and a bird element along with sprinkled paint to complete the final look of the page.

Art journaling is super relaxing and I usually enjoy working on it when facing any kind of creative block. You can experiment with different techniques, background, textures and so forth… it gives you complete freedom to express! Hope you too give it a try and experience it for yourself.
