Hey, Strange Birds
I am so excited about our January Journal Challenge. I am happy to say that I have been creating art every single day for at least an hour for 23 days! I am so excited about the project, that I think we will do an other in February. For now, follow our Instagram account One Strange Bird to get a daily dose of color.
For this post, I wanted to share with you a recent page I created with step-by-step instructions. Below is the full, completed page. This was made one January 20th, 2014 for the topic of kindness.
Materials needed: mod podge, crayons, brush, washi tape, paint markers, stamps, stamp pads, vintage photo or other ephemera, and letter stencils
Step One: I ripped up some cute, patterned scrapbook paper and glued it all over both pages with mod-podge
Step Four: I scribbled and doodled with some crayons to add more color. I also stamped small stamps and pressed some bubble wrap onto a stamp pad to add more texture. I embossed some of the bubble wrap impressions to make them even more textured.
Step Five: I used a stencil to add words. I then filled them in with gold paint.
