Hi everyone! It’s Sharon here today to share a mixed media art journal project that I made using two different CoreStacks – I love how these stacks go together so well!
I got the idea for my project after I heard the song “I Love the Flower Girl” by the Cowsills, from the 60’s, while driving in my car. After hearing this fun song, I wanted to use some of these lyrics for my project. I immediately thought of the pretty faces printed on tissue paper from the Faces & Figures Corestack and knew that one would be perfect for my flower girl.
So . . . I began by painting my page with Gesso, letting it dry, then creating my background with watercolors and stencils. Next, I adhered the face printed on tissue paper to my page using gel medium. (FYI: Heather has a great video under the “ArtStacks Essentials” tab entitled “The Lowdown on Using Tissue Paper.”) Then I fussy cut the pink flowers from the Anemones & Friends Corestack and placed them in my flower girl’s hair and around the page, just like in the song. I also added some stems. (FYI again- check out Heather’s video entitled “Fussy Cutting – What’s the Fuss?”) Next, I glued the song lyrics to my page. And finally, I finished with some stamping and added some gingko leaves from the Trees & Leaves stack.
The stacks I used are:
I hope you get to make something flowery soon 🙂
