In this tutorial, Laura Dame is taking journaling to a whole new level with the latest Dina Wakley MEdia Neon Glosses! Check out her vibrant and bold journal spread that’s guaranteed to make your creativity shine. Neon Glosses are the secret to making your art journal backgrounds pop.
Neon Glosses are the perfect medium to make bold, colorful spreads in your art journals. I love how they make backgrounds pop!
Step 1: Spread two Neon Gloss colors across the pages of your journal. Here, Bodacious and Stoked were used.
Step 2: Using acrylic and a mini blending tool, add some stenciling to the background. Using a dropper, scribble on the background with white Gloss.
Step 3: Using Ultra Thick Gel Medium, add some Typed Ledger Papers to the background. With Gel Medium, add collage paper, also.
Step 4: With a mini blending tool, stencil White Gesso onto two #8 tags.
Step 5: Add coordinating colors of Glosses to the tags using a sprayer or dropper. Spread the color by smooshing both tags together. Notice how the gessoed patterns show as the colors pool around them.
Step 6: Stamp botanical images and phrases onto book paper and cut out.
Step 7: Attach one of the tags to the spread with a stapler. Rip off any excess that may hang off the bottom edge. Add a face transparency and botanical image with a stapler or Ultra Thick Gel Medium. Add a phrase to the page with Gel Medium, then splatter with Black Gloss.
