Be True To Your School... Preeti

Hello friends! We are back today with another fabulous project for you from our Design Team for September's Dare - Be True To Your School! We are at another back to school season, so let's see anything School Related - maybe even some flash back photos, grads, first days, first dates. This year has been a year of musical inspiration for our challenges, taken from songs that are some of Kim's favourites, so I think it's fitting that September's Song would be Beach Boys - Be True To Your School. Click the link to have a listen to this fun vintage song!

Hi folks :) Good morning! For the September Challenge where the theme is "Be True to your School" I have created a Grungy Mixed Media Art Journal Spread, titled, "Shine Brightly". The theme this month is so interesting & you are free to interpret it any way you like! I was inspired by Buddhism and the Tree of Enlightenment. 

Here are some photos of the Art Journal Spread:


1. Applied heavy white gesso to the art journal pages to prepare them for mixed media work
2. Created a collage on the pages using tissue papers & decoupage tissues, adhered them using collage medium
3. To add textures and interest, did background stencilling, by applying modelling paste through a Finnabair stencil onto both the pages, while the paste was still wet, sprinkled on & heat embossed it with EC embossing powders. 
4. Added colours to the background by spraying with water and adding Starburst Squirts by Lindy's Gang. I let the colour flow naturally and dried the pages. 
5. Then did background stamping with a couple of text stamps using versamark ink and heat embossed the stamped texts using EC embossing powders. 
6. Created die cuts (for layering) using thick black cardstock and heat embossed them using EC embossing powders
7. For the focal element, fussy cut the image from a pattern paper.  
8. Adhered all the elements and black thread to the pages using a strong glue and added a word sticker by 7 Dots Studio as the sentiment. 
9. In the end, distressed the edges of the pages with distress inks and created ink splatter. 

Thanks a lot for your precious time :)
Stay Blessed
