Art Techniques for Art Journaling
Art Journaling Mini Series
Please note the final piece in the video is not a finished product, I wasn't creating anything in particular, I'm just showing you the techniques, they don't all need to be applied at once.
Ink Pads and Distressing Pages
In the video I have posted below to go alongside the tutorials I have used a Tim Holtz distress ink pad in Antique Linen. Rub the ink pad liberally across the page and then use a cheap make up sponge or a stamp blender to blend the ink on the page.
Of course you don't have to blend the ink, you can leave it as it is, it's all down to personal preference. This makes a great base for creating an art journal page and ageing the page. You can use any ink pad to do this. I personally prefer the range of distress and distress oxide inks from Tim Holtz as they are much better for blending and are a much better quality for using on backgrounds. Have a look at the inks here - Tim Holtz Distress Inks (plus get 20% off your first order).
Adding Salt to Create Texture in Watercolour
Next I applied watercolour to the opposite page in two tone variations using an Aquash Pentel watercolour brush (UK) or Water color brushes, here (US), great for art journaling on the go as you don't need to keep dipping the brush into water.
Take a small handful of ordinary salt and add it to the watercolour. This will create texture to the page as it reacts in the water. It is a good idea at this point to either speed up the drying with a heat tool or hairdryer or wait an hour for it to dry.
I love the effect this gives as you can see it really makes the page pop.
