Vintage Style Collage in Art Journal with Natalie May

Hey there Stencil Fans!

Natalie here today with a super collagey Art Journal Page!

I love a good collage and couldn't wait to create some gorgeous prints using StencilGirl and some vintage papers!

Lets check out a few of the simple steps I used to create some collage papers.

I used a combination of watercolours, distress oxide ink and acrylic paint to sponge, paint and smoosh onto lots of different substrates.  

I used dress pattern, dictionary pages and book pages, Tim Holtz collage paper + a variety of gel press prints on deli paper that I pulled from my stash.  When they are all torn and overlapping on the page, they fit in beautifully together.

I love the simple effect each created and keeping the colours within a simple palette made them all come together really well.  

Once I had all my collage elements ready, I started using gel medium to add them to my page, tearing and overlapping plus adding a little washi tape.

Once it's dry, I swiped a little white paint just to break it up and then finished with a focal point image.

Thanks for stopping by.

  3. Sarath Maddineni, an artist of emotive landscapes and abstract expressions, merges vivid hues with intricate textures, inviting viewers into introspective journeys. His compositions, balancing chaos and serenity, evoke a profound sense of connection to nature and self. Maddineni's work transcends mere visuals, speaking directly to the soul with its depth and resonance.
