Mixed Media Journal With Photo
I am so happy of what I made today. This is beautiful journal for my niece. I thought adding her photo on the front will make it special. I envisioned this journal to be on the shades of pink, copper and gold, something pretty in pink. While I was doing the 3rd layer of paint color. I was no where near to what I would like it to be but I am glad I was able to pull it together. Textures added are lace and some cut outs from my cricut machine. I used matte gel medium to glue them on the journal. I prep them with gesso and added metallic colors on it. Flowers are all scrapbook embellishments and I added glass cabochons. I also added ribbon to complete the look of this journal. I think this journal turned out really pretty. Perfect gift for you a young lady.
Mixed Media Personalized Journal
After 2 days break, I finally created what I had in mind. A new journal cover design. This is my latest mixed media journal. It has shades of light purple, turquoise, copper, gold and silver. Texture used on this cover are parchment paper and heavy card board cut out from my cricut machine. Flowers, gears, lock, key and nameplate are all made of polymer clay. Base paint is gesso and then layered with metallic paint, sprayed with lindy stamp gang and layers of viva inca gold. I also painted the back cover, same shades to match the front. This turned out to be a good project. It was a lot of fun adding layers of paint and mist on it.
Mixed Media Polymer Clay On Canvas
These past 2 weeks. I have decided to try something different. Something I haven’t tried before but always been in my to do list. The moment has come for me to give it a try. So, I created a mixed media canvas. I’m always drawn to those beautiful layers of paint colours, with aged metallic look and the idea of using other materials and putting them together into one beautiful piece. Of course, I have to add my favourite medium on it. I’ve been making a collection of floral polymer clay on canvas. This week I created this cherry blossoms canvas. I am pretty happy how this canvas turned out. The texture that I added to this canvas are crumpled parchment papers and embossing paste. I used layers of metallic acrylic paint, black & white paint, viva inca gold and lindy stamp gang spray. Flowers, branches and wood are all hand sculpted using polymer clay. The color combination I used for this canvas, compliments the beautiful flowers. Here’s my other mixed media wall arts: Roses and leaves on this canvas are all polymer clay. Texture background is cheesecloth layered with paint. Butterflies are made of chipboard. Flowers on this canvas are orchids. It is a skinner blend of orange and red clay. I am pretty pleased on how this canvas turned out . The background colour are done using sponge and paint. All of these wall arts are available in my shop for purchase.
Steps On How I Create The Journal & Sketchbook Covers
The process of making the journal and sketchbook covers are all handmade from start to finish. It takes about 2 – 36 hours, depending on the amount of details on the design. I use sculpey premo polymer clay and materials. They are made to be durable for everyday use. Process involves conditioning clay, shaping, cutting, sculpting, hand stamping, finishing it with different mediums, curing for 40 minutes or more, gluing it to the journal, sketchbook or notebook, sealing and last step is to let dry. Then your journal is ready for packaging and shipment. Because it is handmade, nothing is exactly the same. This makes every journal and sketchbook covers unique and special. Same in any other art pieces I created. It is not mass produced nor machine made. My love, my time, my passion are in every pieces I make.
