Mixed Media Altered Travel Journal by Steph

Posted on June 12 2020

Hello everyone, Steph here today with an altered travel journal using  Rinea Foiled Papers.

Mixed Media Altered Journal using Rinea Foiled Paper

I started my travel journal by painting the front cover with gesso.  While still wet, I adhered the Marigold Starstruck Foiled Paper to the front cover.  I also applied some more gesso randomly around the front cover, covering part of the foil.  This not only assured a good seal, but it also gave me a base to which I could add assorted inks.


Using assorted travel themed stencils with modeling paste, I added texture around the journal.  Rinea Foils are strong enough to withstand an assortment of techniques.


Once the modeling paste dried, I spritzed assorted colors of spray inks on the journal.  Using a paper towel, I blotted up excess ink.  For more dimension, I stamped a script stamp around the edges.  I also stamped several travel phrases around the journal.


Finally, I cut Ebony Gold/Glossy Foiled Paper to fit chipboard squares which were added to the cover.
What will you create today?
Thanks for stopping by.
Steph
