Mermaids and a Masking Technique

Hello! Today I have another art journal page to share. This is the first page in my new little 5.5 inch art journal. It was so much fun going in my studio and getting lost. 

Start by stamping The Femmes Mermaid Ocean Scene onto your art journal page. Also stamp it on a scrap piece of cardstock and cut it out. This will be our mask. 

Using repositionable adhesive, adhere your mask on top of the stamped image in your journal. This will allow you to ink your journal page all up and stamp around without messing up your original stamped image. 

Using a brayer, roll Distress Oxide onto the Gel Press. I did a two toned background using Mermaid Lagoon, (only appropriate for this beautiful stamp), and Seedless Preserves. Then using a fan brush, tap the Brusho mixture onto your Gel Press... 

Once the Gel Press is all inked up, flip it and "stamp it" onto your journal page. Reink and stamp on the opposite page. 

The next step is to take the Handwritten Note Art and stamp along the edge of the Art Journal Page. 

Grab the Distress Oxide and ink around the mask...

Now for the big reveal! Remove your mask... 

...and the bonus is, the mask is beautiful and can be used on another project! 

Using several different mediums, I colored my mermaid. This was so much fun and relaxing. ...and of course, add a little bling and sparkle. 

Write your quote with black pens and your journal page is complete. 

Have no fear of the depth or trying new techniques!
