Art Journalling and Special Announcement

HI there Mixed Media Mojo fans!  Maria here today to share an art journal page that I made.  Have you played along in this month's challenge, there is still time!

I love using Dylusions products by Ranger.  I have all the spray colors and now they are coming out with paints in all those fabulous colors!  Have you heard about that?  I don't have my hands on them yet but hopefully my LSS will get them in soon!  I've heard that they are very fluid, bright and dry super fast.  Dyan Reaveley claims she loves them because she likes to work very fast and they dry fast.  Of course "everyone" has paints out there which seems weird and you might say why?  Tim Holtz has a distress line which is a line of paints, inks and stains that react in cool ways to achieve a distressed look.  I will do a future post on Tim Holtz products. I know Dina Wakley has a line of paints I believe those are thicker paints. Now Dyan is releasing her own line of paints.

Anyhow, I worked in this journal:

This is the smaller of the 2 Dylusions Journals.  I have the larger one but this size is perfect.  It measures 5 5/8'' x 8 3/8" cover and pages are 5"x8".

Here is a page I did inspired by one of Dyan's Videos and techniques:

In the video where Dyan shows this technique from CHA 2015 she was using and showing the new paints especially how awesome the black is.  Here I just used plain acrylics I had on hand.  Next week I will share some more details on this page and perhaps another page for you.

Check out her great video straight from CHA HERE.
