Junk Journaling Tutorial with Watercolors and Loose Florals

Hi there, Susanne here with a junk art journal spread using watercolors and some flowers and leaves from our brand new Loose Florals stamp set. I am working in one of my handmade old book journals. I made them years ago with an old book cover and a lot of junky papers. I love to work in this journal whenever I have absolutely no idea what to create. I just blob down colors and go with the flow. Scroll down for a full process video.

There was already a lot going on on the left page of my spread, so it did not take much time to finish the background. I added some loose watercoloring to the spread and after these had dried I went in with some white gesso and applied this with my fingers. After this was dry I did some background stamping with images from Mix It Up 5 and Mix It Up 6. I added some Paynes Grey acrylic ink to bring in more contrast.

Whilst the ink was drying I prepared my focal point. I stamped images from our Loose Florals stamp set onto gelli prints using StazOn ink. I cut them out and adhered them to my spread. I added some extra color to the flower centers with acrylic markers.
