Cats | Pop Painted Art Journaling Page

Posted on 14 Feb 2017

This week I had loads of fun using my pop paint on an art journaling page. The colours are simply scrumptious and the texture you can create
using the paint is amazing. Take a look at what I did to achieve the beautiful end results.

Select the three colours of paint you want to work with – I picked Minted, Zest and Skyfall.

step 2 – Apply a small amount of paint one colour at a time onto an acrylic block used for stamping.

step 3 – Then use your rubber roller (brayer) and spread the paint out over the entire block.

step 4 – Now press the block onto your art journaling pages repeatedly.

step 5 – As you lift the block you can see the transferred paint – the more pressure you apply the more paint will transfer.

step 6 – Repeat until your pages are covered in paint.
I rotated my block and work with one colour at a time.

step 7 – Now add some background stamping directly onto your dry paint layer.

I went with a cat theme with a brick background.

I added details like scrap printed circles, cut out stars from patterned paper, chipboard title and of course my stamped cats added onto the background
in white to make them pop against my colourful background.

I love how this page turned out with the textured and colourful background in a few easy steps.
