today I want to show you some Art Journal Pages I created by using the versatile Girlie Grunge Art Medium from Donna Salazar by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3l. I got this product to experience with it and had so much fun with it.
The Girlie Grunge Art Medium is a gel medium you can use to adhere collages, to mix it with pigment powders or also to make some phototransfers. This is a really versatile art medium you don't want to miss.
Here is how I made my phototransfers.
1 - Collect some paper scraps, tissue papers, book pages, look out a brush and the Girlie Grunge Art Medium.
2 - Create a collage with papers by using the Girlie Grunge Art Medium. Just apply gel medium with a brush on your page and assemble your collage.
3 - Print out a photo with your printer (Ink Jet is good) and apply 2 layers of Girlie Grunge Art Medium on it. Let dry every layer.
4 - Apply another layer of Art Medium and also apply a layer of Girlie Grunge Art Medium directly onto the page.
5 - Lay down the photo and use a brayer or your hands to adhere it. Let it dry some hours.
6 - Apply a bit of water on your photo and then rub carefully with your finger. The photo will appear. Now apply another layer of Girlie Grunge Art Medium to make the transfer clearer. Then it's up to you to add paint, words, stamps or anything else to complete your art journal page.
I gave my motive an outline with a black pen and added some watercolor paint on it to finished the page.
Here is another page on which I used the Girlie Grunge Art Medium for phototransfer and collage.
I wish you a nice creative day!
