Art JOURAL Mondays!! ::: Rock Out!!

Hi LOVLIES!!!! So its Monday AGAIN. Boy do these come fast. So today I wanted to dedicate my page to one of my besties in the whole world. She really is my rock. So get out your journal, slather some gesso, some water colors, spray paint, yes lovlies I said spray paint, distress ink, Ultra Thick embossing powder for the emboss resist technique, stamps of your choice, a couple of stencils (thats what the spray paint is for), alcohol inks for that strip of transparency that you are going to stamp (with stays on) a sentiment of your choice, a photo (just a black and white copy modge podged to your page will do) a couple of simple prima flowers and last but not least an old postage stamp. Layer layer layer, trick is to dab a rag after each layer...gesso, then watercolor (I choose blue), dab dab, brown and gold spray paint, dab dab, more water color, dab dab, walnut stain distress ink, dab dab and then embelish at will!!


  1. I just love this!!! I have purchased all of my materials for an altered journal; gesso, water crayons, acrylics, water colors, and spray paint...I JUST NEED TIME! I can't buy that. I am so jealous that you have time to do this. Altered art is my thing and I can't wait to get into it. Do you follow any altered artists on blogspot or youtube? I have a couple of favs.
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. What type of spraypaint are you using for your art?

  3. Hi Sandra, I use the cheapest spray paint its the dollar spray paint from Wal-mart. My pages wont rust so I dont need to spend six bucks for a can of Spray paint ;)

  4. this is just fab ! I wish i could do something like that !
