Mixed media Art journal page with a lily drawing

Art journal with Inktense & Dylusions

This mixed media art journal page was created using Derwent Inktense pen (color Bark) and two colors of Dylusions inks (Pomergranate seed and Vibrant turqoise). I hoped using dark brown Inktence pen together vith vibrant Dylusions inks and white color would create a lovely variety of muted pastel colors - and it did. I also used a little bit of acrylic paint to add more color to certain parts of the page.

The page is primed with white gesso. I started with the Inktence pen / pencil, then used white modeling paste with a stencil to both sides of the page. Next step I added water and inks to the page and finished everything up with black and white markers and a white gel pen.

I added pieces of cheese cloth to both sides using matt medium and adhered the sentiment card and other embellisments with hot glue. You could use craft glue as well. The sentiment card is cut out from a Project life card by Becky Higgins.

Remember to clean up your stencil and brushes immediately after use with warm water and let everything dry before you go on to the next step!
