Art Journal Challenge

Hi! I’m back with another crafty post. I got stuck on my first-try-project with my new Faber Castell goodies and wanted to abandon ship and move on. And what better way to move on than to start a challenge in your new Dylusions’ Art Journal?! Another birthday present (I was SUPER spoiled!) that I got to play with. My theme was inspired by “Take the Challenge with Mou“, to create any project about your favorite beverage. This was a quick choice to make, since the last couple of months I’m completely hooked on Little Miracles Organic Energy drinks.

I started by sketching on printer paper. After I was satisfied with my sketch, I sketch it again in my art journal. I colored the sketch, using the colors of the bottle of Little Miracles. As you can see in the images below, a little Gelato will give you a lot of color. I build up the colors gradually, using my fingers and a baby wipe to blend.

For the background I used my Gelatos to color Whipped Spackle, which I used on a Heidi Swapp flower stencil. You just scribble a Gelato onto your craft sheet, add the Whipped Spackle and mix them together. The sky I also embellished with a Heidi Swapp stencil. For some extra definition and outlining, I used some Big Brushes and blended them with my finger while they were still wet. Lastly, some letter stickers by Hema and my page was done!

I’m really sorry for the bad lighting. I lightbulb died today and my phone won’t cooperate to make a nice and crisp image. But you’ll get the idea.. Leave me a comment on what you think of my page, working with Gelatos and Big Brush pens but most importantly.. What is your favorite beverage? I’d love to hear from you. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and take care!
