All this week at the Penny Black Blog the designers are sharing a new product from Faber-Castell.
It is this awesome little mixed media Journal! I loved working on these pages and I know you will too!
Today is my turn and I have a tutorial to help inspire you to make your own journal pages!
First I drew a figure on my page with pencil. You can print and use this image if you like.
Next photocopy the image to make a mask.
Color rubber stamp with Gelatos, spritz with water then stamp over entire page.
Color girl starting with pitt pastel pencils then colored pencils. Stamp tulips with black Staz-on.
Color tulips with pitt pastel pencils first then colored pencils.
Stamp bird on branch with black staz-on. Clean off stamp then ink only front of the branch and stamp around bird and bottom of tulips.
I added more detail to the girl and tulips with a size 01 black micron pen.
Below are more photos of the other pages I did using similar techniques.
Don't forget to head over to the Penny Black Blog for more inspiration and a chance to win some prizes. From there you can head over to Faber-Castell where they have even more chances to win!
