Last week I showed you a fairly simple crayon colored page of Hera in my art journal. Today I'm kicking it up a notch. I stamped her on vintage typewritten paper and added a lot of other elements to it to form a mixed media page in my journal.
I used stencil girl succulent stencil and copper colored acrylic paint for the roses. Then stamped Hera with Staz On Black. I colored her and the roses with Tombow Dual Brush markers.
Then I took a small round stencil brush and Noodler's ink Qin Shi Huang, which I have a sample of, to give the roses a pretty pink color. And with an overlay of the stencil, I mixed the ink with some iridescent medium to give them a halo.
As a last step I took some winsor and newton blue drawing ink to give the background a light blue color. I love the pink and blue contrast.
In the end I also spattered a bit of pink ink over the page. And she was ready to be added to my art journal.
I trimmed the page on the sides to fit the journal and adhered the trim on the bottom because the pages were taller than the typewritten page. This way it works nicely and I don't have a blank strip of the book underneath. I have to say that I'm absolutely in love with this page and am happy the way she turned out.
With this journal page I'm entering the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #25 (their 2nd year anniversary challenge! Congrats to them!) and picked the Butterflies and Blooms theme :)
Next week another take on the Hera stamp incorporated with gelli prints.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
