Hi Blitsy Fans,
Today I am taking one of the backgrounds we created from the 5 Ways to Jump Start Your Art Journal Page and finishing it in a very simple way. If you are new to mixed media or have always wanted to try it, this is one of my favorite ways to create a beautiful page without a whole lotta fuss. I started with a light coat of white gesso just to even everything out while still being able to see the patterns because we definitely want to still see those through our layers. Since I started building this page with a variety of pattern papers, I'm taking the pretty colors from those pages to match paint colors to start building layers. I am using a variety of different Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylics which I had colors that mostly matched the colors in the papers. For the gorgeous minty green color I combined two colors since I didn't have an exact match. This is a great way to stretch your supplies, too! Be sure to scroll down to watch my process video as I create this page for you today.
