|I have created a couple of 3 x 6 art journals out of different papers and I would like to show you my first page!|
This particular 3 x 6 journal was made from Prima Marketing's 3 x 6 watercolor paper pad. I had this pad lying around and aside from a couple of bookmarks, I really hadn't done anything with it yet. One of my favorite things to do is make art journals, so that's exactly what I did! I got out my handy Zutter Bind-It-All and tore the papers from pad, and then bound them together.
I made two other 3 x 6 journals as well, almost identical to each other, using different kinds of paper: music paper, mixed media paper, pastel paper, canvas paper and scrapbook paper. And I will be creating for this series in one of those as well. For this page, however, I wanted the watercolor paper so I could play with my Prima Classics Watercolor Pans. I wanted to see how isopropyl alcohol reacted with watercolor paint myself (I've watched sooo many videos on Youtube lol).
So I used some purple and blue watercolors from the Prima Classics set and added some water spray to move it around, and then I dropped some isopropyl alcohol into it and watched the magic! The alcohol moves the paint away from it and creates these "holes" in the color. Then I dried it with my heat gun, and did it all over again. Filing the holes with more color, and creating new holes in the new layer. I did this about 3 times and then dried the page very well.
Lastly, I chose the text stickers I wanted and shaded around the outside with a blue Inktense Pencil and also shaded around the outside of the page with Blueprint Sketch Distress Ink.
