Treasures of the Deep

posted in: ART JOURNAL | 0


Not long ago I introduced my new Mixed Media Art Parts themed packets with all kinds of fun things for creating scrapbooks, artwork, cards, art journals, or whatever other crafty project suits your fancy.  Today I want to share a couple of little projects I have done this week that uses elements from the packet.

smash book

For the first project, I made a little divider page for July in my smash book.  I used the package header and cut out the letters to make the word “Start” which is exactly the key to using the packet… just START!  I also used the blue print paper for the background, and cut papers from the digital collage page.


I used a small scrap of the paper to fold a tab for the month of July.  The sheet is glued to the coloring page to make a nice sturdy divider page. I actually used watercolors to paint my coloring page.

Another project I used my pack supplies on this week was an art journal page. It started out as a spread in my “Artematics” book.

I laid out the contents of the package to decide what I could use on this page.

I liked the shell, and portions of the building so decided to keep them. I laid down some of the small paper scraps.  One of the pieces in the pack had an underwater photo of octopus.  On top of this I added some paint in teal, white, and black.

The mesh piece I used with the cosmetic sponge as a stencil.  Later I will find something to incorporate it into. I pasted, patterned and I hope I can hold up through the open house. I cut out one of the fish that came in the packet.  I mixed the sand with matte medium and spread it along the bottom of my “ocean”.

I think I will add some of the coral and sea weed plant details, but that will have to happen on another day!
