Art Journal Cover...... By Rachel Dutko

Hi everybody

Its Rachel Dutko here, back for my second guest post for Scrap Matrix.

Today I am sharing some projects in my art journal. I finally took the plunge and worked on the cover of my Dina Wakley Media Journal. I used some amazing products from Scrap Matrix, and I'm really happy with the result.

Here's a look at the cover.

And now here's a look at the steps I took to create my cover.

I used some Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic paint in Sky, Lime and Lemon, as well as Dylusions paint in London Blue and Calypso Teal and Colour Blast White Heavy Gesso on a Gel Press plate to create the background. I really love the distressed look that this creates.

I then added some more Dina Wakley Media acrylic paint in Tangerine and Magenta through a Finnabair 'Weaving' stencil, and some Dina Wakley stamps.


For the main focus I used some Colour Blast Colour Paste through a Kinder Kreations mandala stencil and a 13 Arts word stencil.  I've used 'Singin The Blues' and 'Royalty' on the mandala and 'Bling' for the words. The best tip I have for using Colour Blast Colour Paste is to leave the seal on so the paste doesn't dry out too quickly in the pot.

I added some highlights with a gold and then a black Sharpie.
My last embellishment was to colour some Kinder Kreations Geo chipboard stars with 'Lipstick' Colour Blast Colour Paste.


I have also created a page within the journal with the same process, but this time I featured some 13 Arts word stickers.
