{Mixed Media Tutorial} Art Journal Cover by Tanja


Hi there,

it's Tanja here and I would like to share a new Step-by-Step Tutorial with you.
If you are interested in the products I used or other STAMPlorations, ARTplorations or CUTplorations products, I have a special treat for you: use the discount code STAMPGIRLTANJA and get 20% off on all stamps, stencils, and dies.




  • this DIY multi surface Art Journal contains a Textured Surface, Glossy Cardstock, Canvas, Manila Cardstock, Patterned Paper, Kraft Cardstock, Watercolor Paper and Black Cardstock
  • the front and the back cover are cut from sturdy watercolor paper
  • I used the new CUTplorations Lacy Edges/Borders dies for the right/bottom edge of the pages
  • in this post I will show you how I created the front cover
  • color the image with ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens
  • add shading with a Distress Marker (Hickory Smoke) and a black Stabilo All Pencil
  • create a background with Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean) and a wet watercolor brush
  • pick up some left-over ink from the craft sheet to add droplets

I hope you got inspired.

Yours,
