Another PATWITS circle journal to share today. This time it is Deborah’s hand shaped journal.
As per usual I adored all the artwork in the pages already completed and felt overwhelmed and nervous about whether I could come close to matching their beauty. But I quickly threw the doubts to one side as they wouldn’t achieve anything and set to with the medium I felt like using at the time… Brushos.
I chose ultramarine, purple, pressman blue and tried to keep them quite light to make sure I kept the dispersal patterns.
Already I loved this. Next I attacked the page with stencils… and gesso and texture paste and ink. Again I love how this was shaping up.
The hand shaped made me grab a Paperartsy mini stamp for the right hand side and the numbers stencil too. Then I started to focus on the title. I also started adding depth to the framing of the pages with plenty of inking.
the next step was more stamping and then doodling and mark making round shapes. I also added some depth to shapes and spots of colour using Inktense pencils.
I finished it off with the quite stickers and the stamped title. I made this over the course of several days.and was very happy with it. Should have remembered to get a better picture than this but it’s already off with the next person so this is the best I can do.
Looking forward to receiving one more journal and then mine will be coming back to me. Such a lovely project to have been involved in.
