Art Journal

Hi guys, over at Tando Creative the theme this week is anything goes, I am fairly new to mixed media but love to play so i thought an Art journal was a good way to create and play with products and then have a way to remember what works, or not lol,

I used some white Gesso, then when dry added some paints on top, I wanted the Baroque mask to be 
the main feature so i kept the background subtle, I used the sequin waste mask with the same colours to add a little detail too,
The Distressed Diamond mask has some modeling paste through and when dry I painted over with some acrylic fluid paints,
Stamps from my stash finish the background off, then i took the Baroque Mask and stencil through it with black Gesso, this makes it really pop,
Well I've a lot to learn but i keep popping over to my lovely friend Pamellia's blog to get some hints and tips as she is so talented and makes some gorgeous makes,
Anyway i hope you like it and feel like having a go yourself,
If you would love to join us please click on the link at the top of the blog, we would love to see you there,
hugs Liz xx
