Heather had all four seasons in mind when she transformed her Mini Mixed Media Journal.
Let’s take a trip through the year along with some tips and techniques from Heather herself. First stop, Winter! Brrrr…..
This winter board features popped up tags masked and sponged to sit over the top of a winter scene made with masking fluid, Gelatos and sponged ink. The berries are colored with ink and Gelato snow. And to give each board a special touch, all of Heather’s titles were hand written.
Okay, time for the snow to melt and spring to take hold…
This spring board features a Gelato and ink background make by both sponging through die cut masks and blending with Gelatos. The 4304H Polka Dot Spring stamp was colored with Gelatos then misted for a watercolor look. The butterflies were die cut from a watercolored Gelato panel. Finally, the die cut flowers were highlighted by blending with Gelatos.
Now for bright and bold summer…
The emboss resist flowers were highlighted by blending with Gelatos over the top then adding a little marker for extra definition. A tagged banner flies over a sponged sky.
And we don’t know about you, but this next art journal board has us dreaming of a cozy sweater and a crisp Autumn day…
Heather’s trademark collage background was stamped and sponged then the leaves were die cut from Gelato watercolored panels and Mix and Match papers.
