Mixed Media Art Journal Rock'n Girl



  If you haven't guessed it by now.... it is another Monday and another installment of Mixed Media Monday.  I think it is a nice way to start the week.  I know it helps me to get going on with the rest of the tasks of the week.  So here is a page in my art journal:





The theme from now until November 8 at our  All That Stickles Linky Party is "Anything Goes with Distress Stickles."  Those are my favourite line in the stickles family as they coordinate so well with the other Distress Products by Tim Holtz for Ranger.  Mind you all their products coordinate perfectly, these just happen to be my weakness!  For this page I had the privilege of working with a digital from our sponsor: the Stamping Chef.  This is the "Rock My World" image.  I used mostly colouring pencils (Prismacolor Premiere) and a blender to colour this image.  I used Distress Stickles in :  Fired Brick, Picket Fence, Barn Door Red, Scattered Straw, and of course my all around favourite = Rock Candy.

I use the Dyan Ravelry "Dyelusions" mixed media art journal, and a crazy combination of left over acrylic paints, inks, and sprays (all Ranger) from various projects as my background base. I collaged bits of vintage and distressed plus inked music sheets, scraps of scrapbook paper in various weights, vintage London bus tickets, and some raffle ticket remnants.  In addition I used some sponged on gesso and Thickers sparkly stickers for the title.

Playing in my journal is fun and therapeutic, I so love this job!  I hope that you get to play in a journal too.  Thanks for stopping by, please play along with our Linky Party, and have a great week.
