Happy Earth Day!

     Happy Earth Day! Drea here with an art journal page to celebrate our beautiful planet, made with an assortment of recycled items and some mixed media from

     I started by adhering a white napkin (opened up) to my page with Prima Marketing Soft Matte Gel. Then I added torn strips from an old dictionary, the magazine images (the tree and Pacific Ocean in Northern California), and netting leftover from some fruit, and coated it with Prima Marketing Gesso (Clear and White). The clear gesso was applied to the circle stencil, and painted with Prima Marketing Art Alchemy Paints (Deep Waters,Emerald Green, and Raven Black).

      Before adding some old stickers for the title, I painted the sky with Art Alchemy Sparks (Magical Pond).

     To blend the image with the background, I used a stipple brush with Prima Marketing Rust Pastes (Brown and Red), and (Dark Olive and Brown) from the Camouflage Set. Then I gave it some touches of Art Alchemy (Ginger Magic) Sparks Paint. I also used the pastes on the some of the plastic greenery, which along with the grass, has been in my stash for awhile, and feels good to use up. 

     The bottom part of my page was painted with Art Alchemy Paints (Fairy Wings and Green-Gold) before embossing with the Stamperia (Meadow) Stamp. Originally I was going to paint the globe from the Stamperia Wooden Frame (Around the World), but decided to keep it natural instead.

          Thanks for stopping by!
