Mixed Media Techniques for Art Journaling with Julie Nutting Stamps from Prima Marketing Inc.

This summer I've been teaching a mixed media class where we focus on technique...we've misted, sprayed, painted, used stencils, used modeling paste, inks, acrylic paints...we've spattered and splashed and layered...



 
And until now we've really focused on creating layered backgrounds...This week we're going to incorporate Julie Nutting Cling Stamps from Prima Marketing Inc.  




The stamps are great and perfect for mixed media techniques...I've stamped a few images to get started.
 

 
On this journal page, I stamped directly on the page and colored over the background...it gives a cool look and you can still somewhat see the background layer through the colored stamp. 
 
 
For next week's class, we're using quotes that are about self affirmation and joy, after all art should be a joyful activity! 
 
 
As you can see our background pages all turned out really cool with lots of layers. 

 


I am looking forward to sharing the techniques with our group...and I am happy to see some of the pages coming together so nicely. 
 
 
 
 We meet once a month, on the second Tuesday, at Mary's Scrapden in Evansville, Indiana...we usually have a full house and have a lot of fun...I always look forward to our Mixed Media for Art Journaling class...it's always awesome!
