It's been a while since I have popped in here to share a full tutorial, but just for a change, here goes:
Varalusikka, who recently invited me to join her design team, asked me if I would create a mixed media tutorial. (For those of you not on Instagram, she has a fabulous shop Paper Garden Finland) So here you go, starting from scratch:
5. Let everything dry thoroughly and then cut your piece to the size you want it. As I wanted my piece as a cover for an A5 journal, I kept the 12" width but cut a piece to 21 cm high.
8. Create a focal point for your journal. I decided to make a shabby cluster, these are brilliant to use up all kinds of scraps and can be used both on journal covers or inside a junk journal. They are great fun to make, and easy.
I gave my corrugated card a quick layer of gesso, this is really the substrate of the cluster, and then glued some of my bits and pieces on top/ I always use 3-in-1 glue, it dries quickly and clear, but you could use any strong kind of glue or a glue gun.
Well, that's it for now, if you are still with me, thank you, hope you will have the chance to have some mixed media fun yourself soon and happy creating!
