A Troop of Inky Mushrooms – Art Journal Page

Hello, Samantha here today and I’m sharing another mixed media page for my art journal. This particular page was inspired by a card I made using just one of the fabulous mushrooms from the new Inky Mushrooms stamp set, here’s the card:

I really enjoyed making the card but it was difficult to choose just one mushroom, hence my journal page with a group of mushrooms. Did you know a group of mushrooms is called a troop?

The card and journal page had the same process, I began by roughly painting the background and stamping some of the images from the Mixed Media Borders stamp set, this I thought would help connect the main images from behind and add a little movement. I dry brushed some white gesso over the top of this layer. I then stamped using the same paint as the background some images from the Carved Collection 4 stamp set, I then used the new Organic 1 stencil and some gold iridescent paint to add the lovely sheen. Using old book pages, I die cut some circles, in hindsight for my journal page I may have used different sized circles. I aged the cut book page using a black gelato. The mushrooms were stamped on white card and coloured using watercolour paints and everything was then adhered in place and some inky splats made the finishing touches.

Thanks so much for stopping, Sam x
