Mixed Media Monday: Imagine. Create. Live.

I had so much fun working on this Mixed Media Art Journal entry. As a recap from last week you can see I used the Tissue Paper Heart Embellishments on this entry.
Scroll down to see how I created this Mixed Media Art Journal Entry:

First I collected some torn pages from an old book and applied them to my page using Golden Gel Medium.


Here is my page after tearing the book pages and adhering them to the page.


Then I painted the edges of the torn pages using Tim Holtz Distress Inks.


Now it was time for me to prime my page with Gesso.


I like how the torn paper created a lot of texture, even after I added acrylic paint and Heidi Swapp Color Shine Gold Spray to the page.


Next I added stamped images as well as my embellished hearts that I created from scrap tissue paper. I also enhanced my heart embellishments by outlining them with my PITT Brush Pen. With the circle stencil I colored them in with my white PITT Pen and then outlined them with my Conté à Paris Pastel Pencil.


After completing that, it was time for me to add my quote (which I found in a Google search): Imagine Your Dreams. Create Your Happiness. Live Your Life.


Lastly below you can see up close the texture on the page as well as the hearts and quote up close.
