Magical Scene in a Traveler’s Notebook Posted on March 3, 2019March 2, 2019 by Christine Burillo-Kirch Today I’m going to talk about doing a little bit of mixed media (just dabbling really), but in a traveler’s sized notebook insert that fits in a Standard Midori. Often mixed media is done on a canvas or in a mixed media journal/notebook. Anyway, I’m not a mixed media artist by any stretch of the imagination, but just someone dabbling in creating things other than cards occasionally.I used a watercolor notebook from Traveler’s Company (a Japanese company that created the Midori traveler’s notebook), but there is no need for you to use this. You don’t have to use a notebook at all, just a sheet of watercolor paper or heavy cardstock! First I tested several distress oxide inks to get a sense of which colors I wanted to use. Below is a sample I made; I modified it when I actually prepared the notebook spread. I stamped several images from the Magical Wizards set on the page and made several masks. I also made masks from the clouds in the Castle Building Die set. Using a blender brush, I blended chipped sapphire and faded jeans distress oxide inks as shown, and then sprinkled gold watercolor. Stars drawn with a white gel pen helped fill the scene. I die cut more images from the Castle Builder set, copic colored the images, stamped a saying from the Magical Sentiments stamp set and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Finally I prepared the images of Hedwig the owl and Fawkes the phoenix with copics and a little heat embossing, since I felt the 2 page spread needed a little bit more interest.Thank you for stopping by! Stamps: Magical Sentiments, Magical Wizards, Wizard Friends Dies: Castle Builder Dies
