Megan Whisner Quinlan shares how to add fun peek-a-boo elements to your art journal pages. Perfect for adding hidden elements and messages, these will add dimension and interest to your Dina Wakley MEdia Art Journal pages.

Instructions 
Art Journaling can be a way for us to express ourselves and get our thoughts into our creations. In this project, you can add a little hidden message or thought through a “peekaboo” image on your page. Using a stamped shape and some cardstock, you can create an interactive page for your art journal.

Step 1:  
Apply Dina Wakley MEdia Night Acrylic Paint with a Mini Ink Blending Tool through the Giant Stars Stencil and stencil some stars randomly across the page.

Step 2: Stamp several different stars onto white card stock from the MEdia Grungy Stars Cling Stamp Set with Jet Black Archival Ink. Cut them out. You can stamp any shape for this project. The Dina Wakley MEdia For the Love of Circles stamp set would work great as well.

Step 3: Using contrasting colors, spray Dina Wakley MEdia Gloss Sprays around the stamped stars on your page. In this project, Olive and Night Sprays were used. Allow your page to dry completely.

Step 5: Glue down just the top tip of your stamped stars with a glue stick onto your page in a random pattern. Tip: Odd numbers can appear more random, than even numbers. Then fold back the star against the glued portion, creating your peek-a-boo flap.

Step 6: Paint a “mirrored” image below your star with MEdia White Gesso. This will be your spot to doodle a hidden message.

Step 7: Once your mirrored image in gesso has dried, doodle and write a hidden message on your painted star using a Fude Ball Pen.

Step 10: Glue your stamped facial image with Ultra Thick Gel Medium to your page. Blend around the edge of your image with acrylics to blend into your page. You can use this idea to add many different kinds of peekaboo shapes on your journal pages.

    Love the face images you use in your work on this page and on your Instagram page. Do you have a line of stamps or who is the designer?
