Mixed Media Art Journal Layout

More to share from my mixed media ‘Tea’ themed art journal. This background was fun for me to make. The background texture was made using a stencil and Semi -Gloss Gel Medium. I added the gel medium after covering the book pages with a gesso wash. By adding a little silver Distress Stain over top the semi-gloss gel it adds a nice shimmer effect.


Yummy texture, right?


Mason Jar Love

Aren’t these Mason jars adorable? I store loose tea in mason jars so I thought these would be fitting in my ‘Tea’ journal. In fact, I store almost everything in mason jars….homemade kombucha, sauerkraut, pickles, leftover food, you name it. What neat ideas have you come up with or seen for Mason jars?
