The challenge this fortnight at Paperartsy is Doodling and scribbling and I decided to have a play on a journal page I started at the weekend and refuse myself any stamping for this one!
The page had some wiped off stencil on it and I added the rainbow of colours using cut and dry foam and the paints left on the palette from other projects.
Next I used a charcoal pencil to draw swirls and the border. Swirls are my favourite thing to doodle as are dots which also made an appearance.
Then I painted over the swirls loosely using Indian ink and a brush. This gave a darker and more permanent finish to the swirls and border.
I decided I wanted a white border so painted it in with a couple of coats of gesso. Then gave a thick black gesso line for the border. I then dotted white gesso in the border to soften it up. Then as this was the word that spoke to me I painted Joy in black gesso across the page.
Next I took a white gelli roll pen and added another swirl around the page and some outlining for the word.
Finally some hanging hearts doodled in too. I then added a little bit more stencilling as I didn’t think it was quite there until I did that. Now truly… joyful!
So this is for the Paperartsy challenge…. really should get thinking about my challenge journal and get cracking on that.
