Hello guys.. Kasia and Tatiana here today with an Art Journal Page.
Scrap studio screams mixed media and art journal to me and I loved using the different elements together with the new Kaiser Mists and Kaiser Ink pads to create this page. .
The colours of the mists are so vibrant and blend beautifully together, leaving a lovely shimmer when dry.
KS328 Kaiser Style A4 Visual Art Diary, P2631 Expressions, PP1055 Scrap Studio 6.5” Paper Pad, SS374 Sticker Sheet, CS340 Clear Stamp, IT044 Lace Doily Template, IT478 Artist Template, KM127 Turquoise Mist, KM129 Denim Mist, KM122 Yellow Mist, KM131 Black Mist, IP757 Permanent Black Ink.

Tear small pieces of the Scrap Studio Paper pad papers and randomly adhere with gel medium to the page.
Roughly paint on white gesso to blend in the background.
When dry add the two doily stickers from the sticker sheet to the top and bottom of your page.
Adhere small bundled strips of muslin with gesso and allow to dry well.
Adhere strips from the sticker sheet, EXPRESSIONS and the paper pad down the bottom left of your page, slightly overlapping one another.
Apply texture paste through the two templates around your cluster of strips and allow to dry really well before moving to the next step.
Spray the Denim and Turquoise mists to the bottom left of your page and add a couple of sprays of water to help the colour move further. Add some sprays of yellow to the upper right of the page and allow to move into the blues to create a nice transition of green. Allow to dry really well and add another coat of colour if you like.
Using the permanent ink stamp a couple of butterflies, dots, film strip and doily images to add some texture and depth to your page.
Finish off by adding a couple of title strips from the sticker sheet and 3 fussy cut butterflies.
Lastly add a few splatters using the black mist.
I had so much fun creating this page I kept on going and playing with the mists a little more.
