Some projects speaks for themselves. This time is no different.
Let Athanasia take you for an artistic journey... feel a wonderful atmosphere created in her art journal.

Hello mixed media friends!
I found this beautiful and interesting photo on pinterest and my mind went straight to my black journal. I used a lot of media to create a dark and mysterious background, a couple of chipboard frames to embellish it and alpha stickers to write the title:
'She always had a way with her brokenness'.

In order to create a mixed media background, I used from Finnabair Basics Heavy White Gesso, Modeling Paste and Matte Soft Gel. First I used a doily stamp with black embossing powder. I melted the embossing powder and glued some paper stripes here and there. Then I used the Modeling Paste with a stencil and a beautiful background stamp with black ink.

Then, I glued the chipboard frames and painted them with Black Silks. I also used the Iridescent Copper Silks on some spots.

Next thing to do was to write the title. I used alpha stickers from the 7Dots Studio Domestic Goddess collection. I sealed them with Soft Matte Gel and made some doodling with the Uniball White Pen.

As some final touches I glued some Mulberry Flakes (I absolutely love this color!!!) with the Soft Matte Gel and made some splashes with the White Gesso.

I hope you got some ideas on how to create a dark and mystery background!
Till next time,
Have a lovely crafty day!
