I joined a new group on Facebook called Limor's Mixed Media Group. I love playing with mixed media but I am not very good with it so I thought joining a group might help with that. I have watched a lot of videos about art journalling and still am lost when it comes to playing in my journal. I just don't have enough ideas. Anyway the challenge for January was to create an Industrial Chic page using Lindy's Industrial Chic mists. Well I didn't have those particular mists but did have some that were close and what I didn't have in Lindy's was able to come up with in Gelato's.
Here is the journal page I created.
First I sprayed the mists and let them run together. I then used several stencils to create dimension. Then I added the bricks using Martha Stewart stucco mixed with grey paint. I added a bit of torn cheesecloth for more texture. Then I used another stencil and some more Gelato to get a bit more texture in the upper right hand corner. I then stamped on some gears and added a couple of washers. I sprinkled a bit of sparkling embossing powders here and there just for a bit of glitter. The journalling reads: The Key to adventure is not the Key, it is putting yourself in gear and start moving.
