Love: Art Journal with Technique Tuesday

Ten years of Technique Tuesday means a year-long party!

And to celebrate the anniversary, we are bringing back some of our popular products from the past throughout 2013. (So far, we've brought back Adored by Ali Edwards, Hash Tags & More, and Petal Power.)

And we are happy to share with you the latest addition (or re-introduction) to our line-up: Irony. We have featured a bunch of projects on the Technique Tuesday blog too!

I used the Irony stamp set on this fun art journal page:

I’ve been having fun with paint… Can you tell?

My parents got me a gift certificate for the local art supply store and I took the opportunity to pick up some paints that I enjoy working with in my art journal and on my mixed media canvases.

They are:

Liquitex Ink

Lumiere by Jacquard

FW Pearlescent Inks

All of the aforementioned paint can be applied in various ways (paint brush, dropper, fingers if you’re daring) but my favourite method for the inks is to dropper them onto the canvas and mist them with a little water to let them run down the paper. It’s fun and you never know what you’re going to end up with!

 

For now (until I grow out of it) I have all of my specialty paints, as I call them, in a small/medium-sized art bin.

That’s all for now! I’m off to do a little birthday shopping!! Take care!
