It's Marta here again! I'm back with my brand new art journal spread created especially for Finnabair Creative Team with the newest pretty babies from Finnabair. New colors of Rust Pastes - Enemone and Coral - surprised me and I felt intrigued, how do they look like mixed together?
I couldn't wait! I started by preparing my art journal's pages. I used an old book. Pages are just covered with a layer of white gesso and some washi and fabric tape. I used gesso only in a few places, just a few touches with a silicone brush, just a few smudges. It makes the letters at the background visible - I love this effect.
I used Paper Texture Paste to create a bit of texture at the background. It's smooth and it has lovely edges. I love to use it with stencils to create just a hint of stencil's pattern.
It's time to a bit of color! I used Opal Magic Acrylic Paint in a lovely Blue-Green shade. I mixed it with water just to create a sparkling cloud of color hanging between the layers of my composition. I build my composition with some paper scraps and fragments of old pages, which I covered with Rust Effect Pastes starting from the darkest one. When I applied the darkest paste, I highlighted it with a bit of orange and rose ones. I applied them with a brush and with a finger and mixed them with water. It created the effect of old wall. I love the Taupe Rose shade, that's why I used it in a few places as a paint.
Chipboards were covered with Opal Magic Acrylic Paint, it created sparkling lovely details on my pages. I added some paper elements again and mixed it with chipboards and a piece of red thread. I added some brads, vintage picture of a girl and sentences cut out from an old book. In the end I added some lovely Vintage Melange Art Pebbles in golden and rose shades (they are really amazing!!!).
The newest Rust Pastes Anemone and Coral were quite intriguing to me,they had such amazing colors! I've never used shades of blue/green with orange and taupe rose before! But they turned out magical, together they look like patina and rust - I'm in love with this effect. The newest Melange art pebbles in vintage shades of rose and amber are mesmerizing, they shine like precious stones. Blue and green shades of Opal Magic paint are perfect to create my background, but also to paint chipboard pieces. I love this color! Basically, I decided to experiment a bit with the color - and I mixed red and teal shades. I'm pretty satisfied with the effect and I'm sure the newest products of Finnabair will be my favorite ones soon! ♥
