Gel Press® is excited to be a part of Life Book 2017. We will be sponsoring giveaways throughout the year to workshop participants as well as giving away a seat in this incredible year-long workshop! As you may have noticed last month, the Art of Well Being is an incredibly important part of what we stand for with the Gel Press® brand. Life Book is themed around self-development and healing through art. We couldn’t be more excited to be a part of it!
Tam is joined by 22 incredible art teachers who are all gearing up to share their mixed media techniques, tips and tricks with YOU! Themed around self-development and healing, you’ll be creating several loose mixed media art journal pages per month. By the end of the year you will bind these pages into a glorious journal (a Life Book)! You will have a wonderful keepsake that you can treasure for the rest of your life!
Have you tried art journaling yet? I love the introspection of art journaling but sometimes I like to start small and begin with a tag. Working smaller makes me feel less intimidated by the blank page. So to get started I usually use this tag as a jumping off point, attach it to my page and theme it from there. On the tag below, I started with a layered print I pulled using circle-shaped dies to mask off areas for creating focal points for the writing. The StencilGirl Marakkech Mix stencil created a great divided look overall. Then I sketched a face and put a wash of Titan Buff paint over where I wanted to soften the layers but still have it appear like my girl is made of many parts to create the whole. Using paint and pastels to color the focal point image allowed a lot of transparent layers. Then I added a couple of collaged, stamped images to adorn her hair. I liked the little star button up at the top of the tag. I reminded me of a little crown.
