Art Girl Tonya...

You know, I love when someone's art speaks to me.  
This does...thank you Tonya for this beautiful art journal page!

Hi everyone, Tonya here today with a mixed media art journal tutorial
featuring these great products from Yvonne Blair:

I created my journal page inside this great  4x8  Art Journal

I used the Journal Buddy for drawing guides.

inspired today's project:
I started today's project by covering my journal page with a coastal map
that I printed from the Internet on copy paper, with a laser printer.
I sealed it with Gel Medium from Ranger, Inc.
To create my ocean, I used the following Lindy's Stamp Gang Products:
  Tilt-A-Wheel Teal - Flat Fabio - Under The Board Walk
C'est la vie Cerise - Flat Fabio - Tre's Chic
Sidewalk Chalk - Flat Fabio -  Neon Graffiti
for a little sparkle I also used
Pearlescents  Glitz Spritz

I love that I can still see hints of the map under the watercolor
effects of the Lindy's products.
In the video below, I share with you how I used the Journal buddy to
draw the Sailboat as well as used it to create waves of the ocean.

 I drew the boat with acrylic paints from Liquitex.  Then used gel pens to
add details.  I also used a blue paint pen to draw details on the sails.
I stamped Yvonne's stamp several times on a sheet of cardstock
using archival ink, then cut out the words and pasted
them onto the page.
Here is the video tutorial:

I didn't have a compass stencil to use on my journal page, so I
combined two stencils. 1) The Crafter's Workshop Mini Specimens
and 2) The Tim Holz Arrow stencil. I love when I can utilize
what I have in my stash to create something new.

It was a lot of fun playing with all these medium.  The quote from Yvonne's stamp
inspired this project the minute that I read it.  I loved that I was able to combine a few
stencils to create a compass look for a board on my page.  I hope I have inspired
you to do something similar.  Thank you for stopping in today.
