Art Journaling a "Shari" Art Girl

Oh, I had so much fun making this journal page! It was so much fun to mess it up with paints, texture, and stamps. I also used rub-ons and lots of Modge Podge. (is that what it is?) I posted many pictures so you could get up close to see what I did. I'm working on my next one. I know I go slow but at least I am doing something, I tell myself.

I made this page on a mixed media weight paper. I'm not sure of the exact weight but it is heavy enough to take wet media like paint or paint sprays. I used Gesso on it first then my colors, etc. I used acrylic paints and some common tools to make the textures. One thing I used was bubble wrap. I love the look. The girl has boots on -which are probably too big, but what the heck! I like 'em! They are made from Burlap.  I took a class from Christy Tomlinson who does the She Art Girls. It is really fun.  She has a Mixed Media Shop called Scarlet Lime, which is great. She has video's on the site and other workshops that one can take to learn how she does her thing. I wish I had time to take them all. 

As always, thanks for visiting! I would love a comment on this if you can leave one. Please come again!

I am posting it on the following blogs:
