Hi, it’s Tessa from How to Make Art, and I’m here to show you a few fun techniques for your art journal pages. Here is the finished product in my art journal:
Here’s what you will need:
STEP ONE: Create a background with Splash inks and colored pencil. I then blacked out a large area for my text/collage with the Authentic Chinese Ink in Ultra Black. I love the way this ink covers effortlessly with just one coat!
STEP TWO: Create a phrase or tiny pencil sketch on a smaller piece of sketch paper. I tore the edges of my paper to give it a fun deckled edge effect.
STEP THREE: Color your small drawing or phrase with the Authentic Chinese Watercolors. I started with a yellow background then filled in the letters in the middle word with red/purple. Last, I went over my cursive words with orange, to give the letters a highlighted look.
STEP FOUR: Apply Nori paste to the back of the paper, and glue it into your book. Now you are finished! Enjoy making art today!
