"Stronger" Art Journal Spread

"Stronger" Art Journal Spread

Posted by DecoArt on Mar 27th 2019

For today’s project, I played with both DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics and Americana Premium Acrylics. It is awesome that DecoArt provides the same colors in different mediums and consistencies so that they can be used in different ways.

I like to use the fluid acrylics on the background to make a more flowing, blended, and abstract look. Then I use the Premium acrylics through stencils to add texture and to add a few more layers of color.

Speaking of texture, I found this awesome stash of vintage lace at a second-hand shop here in town, and I could not resist using my mini sewing machine to stitch it onto my page. I have been obsessed with stitching and fabric ever since I bought this little machine (which I love, by the way!)

I hope you enjoy today’s project and thank you for watching!!
