Hello, everyone! It's Laura, back on the blog today. I am sharing another art journal spread, but one with a little different feel this time.
This project did not start as a journal spread. In fact, I had planned to only make an assortment of tags. But once I started going, this is the direction it led!
I really wanted to try stamping with ArtFoamies and acrylic paint into the gloss sprays. I thought it might make a cool, grungy effect, and I think I was right! I really loved how it turned out! Incidentally, I had some extra spray/paint on one of the foamies, and ended up stamping it on a tag, since it was the closest thing. When I sprayed that tag, the paint and spray I had stamped acted as a resist, and I think it made the result even cooler!
Going back to the tags, I love the way the white ink from the Moonlight Duos pops on the dark background. I've tried a number of white inks, and this is the only one I have ever been happy with.
