It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Exploring the world.
It's been some time since I've made an art journal spread, so I dusted off my art journal and made one for this challenge. I started with a scrap piece of the Materialize Paper Pack and a new sheet. I adhered it together and cut it to the right size. After that I applied a layer of Gesso.
When the Gesso was dry I made a collage with the Expedition Ephemera Pack. After it was all adhered I colored the background with Distress Stain using mini sprayers. Because I used Collage Medium in some places it resisted the Stains. I dabbed off the resisting Stain with a wipe.
With some Distress Crayons I made some definition. Because the Stains couldn't soak in in some places , I picked it up with my finger while rubbing in the Crayons which gave it just a very beautiful subtle effect in combination with Crayons.
