Hello Crafters!

Today I am going to share with you an easy tutorial where I made an art journal page using products from Indigoblu.
Make sure to head over the Indigoblu blog to check out other tutorials that are waiting for you!


I started by covering a 6×6 Mixed Media Paper from Indigoblu with white gesso.

To apply the gesso I of course used my fingers!


I also added some Indigoblu English Cottage Acrylic Paints, always using my fingers.


I sprayed the paper with some water and helped the colors blend all together. I then dried with the heat gun and then I stamped randomly the background.


I used another piece of Mixed Media Paper from Indigoblu and I stamped the sentiment, then I cut the sentiment in stripes and darkened up the border with the StazOn Mini Pad.


I started layering the cluster with other pieces of Mixed Media and a piece of old book paper.


I stitched all around the page , the sentiment and the cluster. Then I added the Kroma Crackle in two opposite corner of the art journal, I let it dry then highligh the cracks with paint.

And that’s all for today, If you have any questions, suggestions or if you want to let me know what  you think of this project, leave a message!

    Lovely layers of paint and papers! Finger painting yes… but not as I know it, your fingers must have a unique talent.
