Art Journal Page-using September’s Frog Dog Studio Mixed Media kit

This tutorial, as well as materials used to make this project can be found on the Frog Dog Studio Blog and Frog Dog Studio Shop.
Good morning all! Melissa here with an art journal page using materials from September’s Frog Dog Studio Mixed Media kit.

This month I received the neon themed kit to play with, and play I did! For my first project I did some work in my art journal using a little bit of everything in the kit.

I started by rubbing the neon green ink pad all over the journal page to create the background.

Next, I added some of the Dylusions white spray ink.

Then, I began adding little bits and pieces of the paint chips, the stickers, and the color fragments. I attached them all with matte medium.

The next step is where I brought in some texture. I laid down a flower stencil and then covered it with Golden Fiber Paste. This paste has a very fibrous feel to it, like a handmade paper. It has a very rustic look that I enjoy.

Using the Viva Liquid Pencil, I added in some doodles along the top and bottom areas. I also cut up the neon pink plastic roll and attached a few of them as circles on the page.

For the final step, I did an exercise that I learned from the book Unstuck. You take a random page in a book and just begin selecting words and phrases that jump out at you. Then I arranged them into a little poem–fun! I cut them out and attached them to the page, then went around them with the pink Faber Castel big brush pen to highlight each phrase and add a little depth.

Here is the finished product and a close up:
