Mixed Media and Creative Artist & Photographer


8 year old Christmas Present Journal

  • Customized the cover of this Strathmore Mixed Media Journal
  • Gessoed the cover and scraped on 3 analogous colors of paint with a credit card
  • I did scrape some of the paint off with edged tool that exposed some of the original cover which was brown and tied in nicely.  
  • Number stencils, paper gear scraps, and a gear stencil. 
  • The shading was achieved with a Stabilo marks all pencil. 
  • The quote is a cut up preprinted ATC and gears were attached with craft glue.
