A Fairy Garden Journal Page

Welcome to another tutorial. Lately I have been working in my journal and decided to share a page with you. It's a fairies garden!



This page has lots of texture and uses a beautiful fairy stamp from The Fairytale Fantasy Figures Art Rubber Stamp Sheet Set designed by Terri Sproul





Other supplies used are:
  • gel medium
  • matte medium
  • jute cord
  • tissue paper
  • collage papers
  • gesso
  • green, black and yellow acrylic paints
  • Golden Pearl Acrylic Paint
  • gold mica powder
  • oil pastel/waters soluble crayon
  • waterproof ink pad
  • texture paste 
  • stencil

Let's get started on the background. Spread gel medium around the page and stick on the jute string in swirls. 


Cover with tissue paper, securing with matte medium. Add any other papers at this point.


When dry, add a coat of gesso. Wipe off in areas that you want to show through.


Start adding color to your background, leaving a light spot in the middle for the fairy.


Add a coat of pearl paint where you will place the fairy. This will give the fairy a nice sparkle.


Stamp the fairy stamp on white tissue paper and allow to dry thoroughly. Be sure to use a waterproof ink.


Stick the fairy on with matte medium.



While that is drying, stamp another fairy on a piece of paper, and cut out. This will be used as a mask.


Cover the fairy with the mask and splatter some diluted white paint with a toothbrush.


Now mix some texture paste with some black paint and grab your stencil. Add some words by carefully apply the texture paste through the stencil.


Use a red oil pastel or soluble crayon to add some shading to the page.


To finish off your page, add gold mica powder to the wings and hair to add a sparkle.


Look at that scrumptious texture!
