Ever find yourself in need of something specific that you don’t have right away? Well remember that you can always make your own. I wanted to use a specific colour acrylic paint that I don’t have, so I used my Couture Creations pigment powders and gesso to make my own paints for an art journal page.
Add a small amount of gesso onto a palette.
Add some pigment powder onto the gesso and then add a small amount f water. The water helps the pigment to mix into the gesso a little bit easier.
Paint the pigment paint onto a sheet of white cardstock using the first colour you mixed.
Paint the next colour of pigment paint your mixed, each time cleaning your palette and brush to avoid contamination between the colours.
Continue filling the background with colour. Lastly, mix gold pigment and using your flat brush add brush strokes to the background. Add s stencilling, stamping and scribbles to your art journal page to finish it off.
