Coffee Religion Art Journal Page

Hello everyone!

This week I have been working on a coffee themed art journal page, inspired by a quote I saw on Facebook. I LOVE coffee, especially cappuccino. I was thrilled to have found a coffeemaker which can make a great cappuccino in just minutes, without the hassle of whipping up milk. I already made a page about my favorite cold beverage, but now it was time for a hot one!

Supplies I used
* Faber Castell Gelatos
* Baby Whipes
* Faber Castell Big Brush / Pitt artist pen
* Faber Castell Gesso
* Uni Posca Paint Markers
* WOW! Funky Border Strips stamp
* Distress Ink Walnut Stain
* Lindy’s Stamp Gang Dark Chocolate Truffle

For the background I cut apart some boxes from Nescafé Dolce Gusto coffee cups.

Walnut Stain stamping

I stamped the background with distress ink Walnut Stain using a WOW! Funky Border Strips stamp for the text and a toilet paper roll for the circles.

Gesso Wash

A watered-down wash of Gesso to push the images more to the background and prep the paper for some coloring.

I colored the cups on the page using my Big Brush Markers and Posca Markers. I also used the same markers to write down the quote. I tried to give the background a washed color of brown Gelato, but it looked like dirty paper. In an attempt to save it, I generously sprayed some Dark Chocolate Truffel shimmer spray over the pages. Unfortunately, the spray has more shimmer than color. To illustrate the shimmer-overload, I made two photos. The bottom one is using the flash on my camera.

I might add a border to the pages, but for now I’ll leave it until I get used to the amount of sparkle .. Last but not least, I’d like to thank my good friend PaperDutchess for lending me her spray.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like my crafty creation and that you got inspired. Take care and hope to see you next time.
