Typo art journal spread with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Typography".

One of ny resolutions for this year is to work more frequently in my art journal and therefor I made this art journal spread. I started with the Alpha embossing folder and placed it in the opposite corners of the spread. Then I used Collage Paper and tore off different parts by wetting it with a with brush. I adhered it with Collage Medium. Then I used a layer of Clear Gesso on top of it all.


After stamping with the 49 and Market and Possibilties stamps, it was time for some texture. I colored  theTexture Paste black by mixing it with Distress Paint Black Soot and I used it with the Type stencil. To add more texture I added Grit-Paste along the edges.


The next step was to apply some color. I first started working with the Nuvo Shimmer Powders, with Green Parade and Atlantis Burst. Then Infusions A Bit Jaded and as final color Nuvo Shimmer Powder Storm Cloud. I left a lot of white parts to add to the contrast. I added Distress Paint Black Soot to the edges with water and top right I added extra to apply drips and dirty distressed edges.

I asked on the your YouTube channel, wondering What paint you used. Looks like Distress paints. I don’t have so I will continue with the high flow pint, since I Jane them, and they are so pigmented and vibrant. Thank for lull the videos on cads and journal pages. I also love listening to the music.
Take care, and I hope you’ll be showing us many more of your fun pieces.
