Circles Techniques Journal by Art Angel

For this project i used,

 I love circles and you can often see them in my work so when they came up as a weekly theme i was in my element!! I decided to create some atc coins but wanted an effective way to display them. What better way than to mount them on to the front cover of a journal that i will look at daily!  I have used the techniques and tags journal as it is perfect alongside atcs both can be used to experiment and try out new ideas and products before moving on to a bigger substrate.

First i base coated four atc coins,, the journal and two tags from inside. I shall keep the rest of the tags for different techniques. I used DecoArt Americana Chalk Paint in Renaissance

I then sprayed one tag with Deco Art Media Shimmer mister in primary magenta, the other in violet, as i couldn't decide which colour i preferred. I heat set them and then tried the turquoise spray over the top. This is exactly what the technique journal was designed for!! I then added a 
Light touch of silver spray too! I was happy with how my tags were looking so repeated the same on  all four atcs and the journals front and back cover both inside and out.

I then used the Sinuosity stamp set from France Papillon with versamark sticky ink, stamping several broken circles and journalling circles on all surfaces, i sprinkled true white fine detail embossing powder over the inked designs, blowing away excess and heat set with a heat gun.

I went on to add texture paste through the rusted rivets stencil again by France Papillon and the  halftone circle stencil by Andy Skinner and waited for it to dry.

When dry, i added some Decoart Metallic Lustre Silver Spark to all edges and three of the washer pieces from Andy Skinner industrial elements. I mounted one of my atcs on one tag, the other three i layered up matching the embossed detail stamped on the front cover, and added the coloured washers as a final touch! 

I love the finished piece and i’m looking forward to filling it!!
