Hi everyone! It’s Sharon here today to share a mixed media art journal project that I made using four different CoreStacks – I love how all of these stacks go together so well! I got the idea for my project after I was going through my stacks and saw how funny Lorraine Haight Moraine’s Altered Ancestors and quotes are!! ! I knew I wanted to make a 2 page spread using one of the figures and a quote.
I began by painting my page with Gesso, letting it dry, then created my background with stamps and chalk ink pads. Next, I adhered the beautiful window from the Doors and Windows stack to my page. I fussy cut and adhered the woman sitting on the couch from Lorraine Haight Moraine’s Altered Ancestors pack. I also fussy cut the blue butterflies and flowers from the Anemones & Friends Corestack and placed them on the page. (FYI – check out Heather’s video entitled “Fussy Cutting – What’s the Fuss?” if you haven’t seen it yet! You can find it on this page here.)
Next, I adhered the hand image printed on tissue paper from the Faces & Figures stack to my page using gel medium. (Heather has a great video under the “ArtStacks Essentials” tab entitled “The Lowdown on Using Tissue Paper.” You can find it here.) And finally, I finished with some more stamping and added my quote printed on tissue paper, also from Lorraine Haight Moraine’s Altered Ancestors pack.
