The Positive Vibes Hop- Vintage Art Journal Spread "Listen to Your Heart" by Dutt Preety


Happy New Year Dear Ones :) 

Hi! I'm Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety). Welcome to The Positive Vibes Hop. 
The purpose of our blog hop is to start the new year on a colourful & creative note, spread positivity & good vibes.We hope you'll enjoy the mixed media projects & pictorials we have prepared.

My Project: 
Vintage Art Journal Spread 
"Listen to Your Heart"

I've created a Vintage Art Journal Spread titled "Listen to Your Heart". I wanted to convey a positive message that we must follow our own heart & be brave. Creating vintage mixed media art journal pages is one of my favourite forms of art & so I wanted to start 2019 with something that truly makes my heart happy :) I've used my favourite colours- blue & green on these pages. 



















Pictorial:

Step 1: Applied white gesso to the pages to prime them for mixed media work, then adhered various washi tapes to the pages & applied a coat of clear gesso on top of the washi tapes.

Step 2: Adhered die cuts, thread & painter's mesh tape to the background using soft matte gel

 Step 3: Mixed Fabrika Decoru's 3D gel with glitter with their Deco Topping Stones, Marbles & Crystals, to create a textured paste. Then applied this paste to the pages for texture & shine. 

Step 4: To add color to the pages, used Lindy's Gang sprays in various shades of blue, green and a black to add depth. Sprayed with water to create movement and dried between each layer of colour. 

Step 5: Did background stamping using archival ink & various Mudra Craft Stamps

Step 6: Used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to distress the edges of the pages, the edges of the Tim Holtz ephemera elements, paper doll & quote chips 

Step 7: Created the layers using all the ephemera elements, Mudra Craft Stamps' Chipzeb, gauze, paper doll & quote chips. Adhered everything using soft matte gel/tacky glue

Step 8: For the finishing touches, darkened the edges of the pages with black soot distress ink, added a bit of shine using Prima Waxes, adhered a few gems and created white and black ink splatter. 

Materials Used: 
2. Mudra Craft Stamps- Stamps (Hexa Mini, Geometric Stories, Checker & Swing Girl), Chipzeb (Floral Flourish, Swirls)
3. Fabrika Decoru 3d Gel with Glitter, Deco Toppings- Marble, Crystal, Quartz Mix
4. Prima Finnabair- Vintage Silk Wax, Heavy White Gesso, Clear Gesso, Soft Matte Gel
5. Tim Holtz Quote Chips, Paper Dolls, Emporium Ephemera
6. Ranger's Distress Inkpads- Vintage Photo, Black Soot and Archival Inkpad- Jet Black
7. Fantasy Dies
8. Aleene's Tacky Glue
