Art Journal scene and video - with Emma

Hi ScrappingClearly peeps, 
Today I’ve got an art journal page to share with you, and I must say it’s not quite what I had invisaged! 
It’s messier then I had hoped and I feel it’s not complete? 
What do you think? 

I have used lots of mixed media products on this. 
Firstly I started out my base paints. I used Art Anthology in Fiji and Silver  But then covered some of the silver with Ranger Caribbean Coast
Much happier with the colour tone then. 

I then stamped a Dark room door Stamp with Ranger Emboss ink and proceeded to emboss in yellow as a contrast to all the blues. 

As I was using the quirky paper dolls I wanted to add a couple of quirky elements, hence this particular stamp. And I used a few Rub ons by Tim Holtz instead of stamping too much. 

I then used some Prima modelling paste through a stencil, and once dry patted some Distress oxide ink in tattered rose over the stencilling to give it a hint of colour. 
You can see all this come together in my video  😊 

I painted my 2Crafty chipboard in Dylusions rose quartz acrylic paint. 
Scattered my people around the place and added a Tim Holtz quote band
I finished with a bit of Liquitex ink in a fineliner to add a bit of interest. 

So what do you think?? 
I must keep playing and practicing! 
i would love you to check out my video here....

I hope it inspires you a little to try outside your comfort zone?? 

I’ll catch you all next month, and I hope you have an awesome Scrappy time until then. 
Em xx
