Bird Art Journal Page using Negative Space

Today I'm creating a page with Masks. If you saw my last post you'll know that this month I'm playing with Masks and Stencils, and throwing in a few Magical Powder Paints for a little touch of sparkle! I can't wait to show you how I've created my own blue wren mask and then used this as negative space in my art to create a simple, but eye-catching art journal page. Gathered together some favourite supplies: I used my journal,... Read more →

Mixed Media Background using Copic Markers and Airbrush

Our brief for the hop was to use products from X-Press It, Copic Oz and Inspiration Lane suppliers to create a mixed media canvas that represented ourselves.
