Don't Forget to Fly - Art Journal Page by Farrel Tailor

Hello and Happy New Year!!!! 

To start of the new year I thought I would share with you all one of my art journal pages. I loved creating this page and I hope it inspires you to create during the holidays.


I started off by adhering a music sheet that I found at my local swap meet and using my fingers I rub a light coverage of Heavy White Gesso all over.


Once the gesso was dry I then added Saffron Colour Spray and Sunflower Colour Shimmer Dust to the corner of the page.


I then drew on my stamp with a distress crayon and spritzed with water and then stamped onto my page.


Next I used Midnight Colour Shimmer Dust with water to cover the page. Because the distress crayons are waxy the Colour Shimmer Dust dries around it and the outcome is amazing. 


Next I used Road Base and Grape Colour Spray with water and let it run down the page.


I added some random stamping using black archival ink


I wanted to add more dimension to the page so I used Steel Colour Paste with a font stencil.

After the paste was dry I rub some black and white gesso around the edges of page of also rubbed the Heavy White Gesso over the stenciled area. I used Tangareen Dream Colour Shimmer Spray to compliment the distress crayon I used. Next I stamped onto some tissue paper and adhered it with Matt Gel Medium to my page.


I added some glitter using Matt Gel Medium to the dress and the hair. I thought the dress needed more depth to it so to finish it off I decided to use Road Base Colour Spray onto the dress.


Here are some close ups of the page and be sure to check out the process video below






Thanks for dropping and Happy Scrappin xx
