Whimsical Art Journal Page with POP Paint
Posted on 12 Jan 2018
After a lovely break we are back in full swing starting off the year with some creative play and a whimsical art journaling page using POP Paint.
I am convinced there is nothing you can’t do with POP Paint and creating stunning effects is just one those things.
Today I am sharing how I create a weathered wood look using POP Paint for my background and then added some details on top of that.
step 1 – Paint a piece of book paper with a resist medium like wood glue or gel medium.
I painted it in selected areas only.
step 2 – Mix Skyfall and Onyx POP Paint together to create a deep dark navy blue paint colour. Just tweak the amounts mixed to create your perfect custom colour.
step 3 – Paint your book paper over the resist medium and leave to dry for a couple of minutes. Before the paint is totally dry,
use a damp cloth and wipe the paint off of the resist areas.
TIP: you can clearly see how when wiped down the text in the background is still visbile.
step 4 – Paint a second layer of resist medium over the first layer of paint and leave to dry.
Once dry paint a lighter shade of paint over the first layer and wipe down as before.
step 5 – Add some Burst POP paint through a stencil to the background in selected areas. I used my finger to apply the paint for a messy smudged effect.
You can also use a sponge dauber to add the paint through the stencil.
step 6 – Use a skewer dipped into Skyfall paint and add some random dots onto the background. Leave the paint layers to dry completely.
Add white and black paint splats, add a stamped and coloured focal point element as well as other decorative elements to your page.
The resist medium creates a beautiful effect leaving some of the book paper visible through the layers of POP Paint.
