Supplies

  1. Tear the map into pieces and adhere them to the art journal page using Americana DecouPage Medium.

2.    Paint the page with a mix of baby blue paint and glazing medium to give the page a sheer look.  Using The Crafter’s Workshop stencil Mini Mountain View apply light avocado paint with a make up sponge.  This will create a distant mountain scene.

4.     Graphite acrylic paint is a soft grey/black color and perfect for the compass and words on the Winged Exploration stencil.

5.     To add more details, texture and dimension, use bubble wrap with bleached sand acrylic paint and the tube or cap with more of the deep periwinkle and midnite blue.  These are simple everyday tools, but add unique details.

I left some of the wording of the map visible on the page, this gives it even more details to look at and find.
