Welcome everyone!! It’s Shari here with an art journaling inspiration for you. Actually, I’ve figured out a relief technique that can be used in not just your art journaling but also your mixed media projects.
Relief is a raised area in art, mainly seen in sculptures and carvings. On this page, I’ve used paper and dies to get that look along with a Dina Wakley Glazing Medium. Glazing Medium extends the drying time of paint so you can add some and have time to wipe some away.
The dark Umber paint I’ve used stays in the recessed areas of the leaves. Cool, isn’t it? You may notice some wrinkles and distressed looking areas of the Collage Frame, that was achieved by covering the frame with tissue wrapping paper first and creating intentional ridges, creases, and imperfections.
I love to experiment in my journal before committing techniques onto a canvas or time-consuming project. I can’t wait to try this with other colors of paint and dies.
