I'm on the Bee Crafty blog today with a spread from my Art Journal using the absolutely fabulous Dragon stamp 😊 How awesome is this image. I also combined it with the amazing Dragon Eye
I'm loving using my Art Journal. ..it allows so much freedom in my creativity.
I prepped my pages with white Gesso before creating a "smooshed" background with my inks. (You can create same effect with Distress inks, Oxides or other water based ink pads).
I randomly stamped the script and the scales stamps over the pages. To get a more random effect I like to hold the stamp in the palm of my hand.
I blended Black Soot Distress Oxide through the brick wall Dinkable.
On seperate card I stamped the Dragon and Eye in Green Distress Oxides, spritzing with a little water to allow colours to me slightly.
I cut these out then added glossy accents on the centres of the eyes and allowed them to dry.
Using the cut out Dragon as I guide I blended through the Feathers Dinkable with Distress Oxides, to create the effect of fire coming from the Dragons mouth.
Once my background and Dragon was dry I adhered them to the spread.
I stamped the sentiment on white card, cut through out and adhered them.
To finish I drew a wiggly frame around the edges.
I hope you enjoyed today's post and I'll be back again soon
