Art journal with Vicky – Shoot for the moon

Posted on October 29, 2014 in Art, Art Journaling, Mixed Media, Uncategorized

Hi everyone, it's Vicky
here today, with another art journal layout.

Vicky Frame

For my cute little scene I used lots of mediums and did my favorite
shading techniques.


My night sky background is full of texture as I used a collage
technique and glued lots of strips to create
a vertical mosaic. The stars were so easy to create by using gesso,
make sure to watch the video below and find out how I did it!


The cat, the moon and the roof are all patterned papers that I cut out
and glued on my layout. But
what really brings the page to life is shading. I used my
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper's Big Brush Artist Pens for shading in
combination with gel medium which is a must if you want to follow this
technique. I explain all about it in the video.


To finish off my layout I added my quote by using little white alpha
stickers. However, to emphasize a
couple of words I stamped and embossed them using my favorite
embossing powder from the "Tres Chic" collection by Lindy's Stamp


You can enjoy the step by step video on creating this art journal


It's not difficult to create. If
you follow the instructions, I am sure you'll be amazed of how easily
you can create that night sky, and
add that adorable kitty on the roof!
