Earlier this week I showed you how to burnish using colored pencils. It is a fun technique that can help make your images pop.
My finished project for this week's technique is an art journaling page for my happiness journal.
Read on to learn how I created this page.
Happiness is.....art journaling page.
Any page that includes deli paper and Dylusions stamps is a win in my book. :) I also added an acrylic skin to this project. Later in the month I will show how to make acrylic skins. (You will get to learn from my many mistakes.)
- Surfaces: Art Journal Page, Card Stock, Watercolor Paper, Deli Paper and Acrylic Skin.
- Color Mediums: Spray Ink, Inktense Pencils, Black Paint, White Paint, Ink, Sharpies and Colored Pencils.
- Tools: Stamps (Border & Woman/Dylusions and Text), Stencil and Stencil Brush.
- Other: Sentiment
