Liquid rainbow art journaling page.

Posted on 01 Aug 2017

Today on the Chiswick blog I am sharing a rainbow inspired art journaling page. This page uses a variety of liquid colours including POP Paint as a base.
To create your own custom colours using POP Paint is so easy.

Simply mix two colours of paint together and you have a new custom colour to experiment with and add a rainbow of colours to your world. Let’s take a look….

Step 1 – Use a palette knife and add some Skyfall paint to an old credit card or squeegee. Swipe the paint across your art journal page. Create interest by varying the lengths of your strokes as well as the thickness of application. Leave this layer to dry.

Step 2 – to create other colours mix 2 colour of POP Paint together. Here I mixed skyfall and signal together to create a purple colour.

Step 3 – USE your gift card again to apply the purple colour in a line next to the blue paint. Create lines like a rainbow using all the different colours of a rainbow.

To add interest to the different layers of colours on my liquid rainbow I added additional liquid ink products on top of my paint colours.

Liquid inks on top of paint will give you some really interesting effects. Remember to layer and layer some more for a stunning end result.

Continue adding all the other colours of your rainbow like pink, red, orange, yellow and green. Use all kinds of mediums you have available for a really interesting look.

Working with paint as a base layer in your art journal gives you a great foundation. The paint offers loads of opportunity to layer other mediums on top as it will basically prime your pages for you instantly. Try experimenting with application methods such as credit cards, squeegee, paint brushes, plastic knifes, feathers etc.

When  it comes to art journals and paint there are no rules but to have fun and enjoy the process. Until next time happy journaling and above all else have fun!
