Photo Tutorial by Shilpa Nagaonkar
{Design Team 'Moment To Shine'}

Hello fellow crafters! It's Heather McMahon back with you 
today to welcome you to another photo tutorial in our 
Design Team 'Moment To Shine' series. 

Today we have a bright and inspirational art journal page by 

Shilpa Nagaonkar from India. Shilpa was inspired by our
 current challenge HERE.

Shilpa showed us a sneak peek in the mood board reveal 
now she is sharing a photo tutorial of how she
 made her eye-catching project.

Shilpa was certainly inspired by the quote but also by the bright 
colours and the bubble-shaped elements on the mood board.

Here is little more about Shilpa:

"Hi, I am Shilpa & I live in Bangalore in India. I have been interested in art since childhood. I was a card maker but became hooked on mixed media a couple of years ago. Creating art journal pages & playing with mixed media is now my passion. Usually my creations are vibrant, lively & colourful. My art keeps me sane. 
When I'm not creating art, I am a voracious reader & enjoy cooking!

I love to connect with people. You can find my blog here, Facebook page here,
 Pinterest here & Instagram here"


1.  Apply white gesso onto the background paper. This creates a good 

base for many layers of inks & paints.


2. Spray teal & pink inks. Spread them by spritzing water then heat set them with a heat tool. This allows you to create another layer & the colours don't mix.

3. Spritz orange & green inks layers & dry as above.

4. Create circles with the bubble stencil & acrylic paints in various colors.

5. Stamp the image with archival ink & colour it with watercolour markers.

6. For more depth, stamp text and texture stamps with black/grey archival 
ink. Apply glitter paint on circles & add the sentiment.

7. Adhere the papers to the art journal & your pages are complete!

Shilpa's bright and bubbly art journal spread:

The glitter paint on the circles gives the pages a sparkly lift!

Shilpa used a pen to outline & add details to her quote.

The stunning stamped image is beautifully coloured.

I was interested to see that you create on sheets of paper SIlpa and then stick them in...I just go straight into my journal.Lovely bright pages and great tut.Now that one of my journals is nearly full I might try some separate pages as it's quite tricky working at the end of the book x
