I have another sample made for the Art journalling session theme of weather and or seasons.
I chose to work on a page in my Dylusions journal and it was one that had some ink wiped off onto it from other projects. Looking at this I decided I wanted a watery look to the page. I did however have some bits of scrap paper on the desk so I decided to get these onto the page first.
I tore them up and placed them fairly randomly around the page. Then gave it a coat of gesso to tone it down and give it some tooth.
Next to add the watery colour… I couldn’t resist getting the Brushos out.
Turquoise and yellow brushos applied quite generously and with plenty of bursts of water.
Then added some aquamarine too in a few places to give a different tone of colours.
After ten minutes it was drying nicely.
And after a few hours it looked fabulous.
Next it was time for some more texture.
I coloured some texture paste with some yellow brusho to make it a light yellow colour. I used a stencil from Balzer designs and stencilled some of the circles.
Then I took a Paperartsy stencil and added some gesso through that to create some white elements.
Once the texture paste and gesso were dry I added some ink to a Tim Holtz embossing folder which is like sun beams and then spritzed it and used it like a stamp so the beams come from the centre of the page.
This looks better once dry than it does here. Then I added some stamping using the Timeless Textures stamps to add some more pattern and texture.
I then chose my title based on something pinned on Pinterest for the group. I used lots of different alphas to create the title and them used a white pen to finish it off. I also added some bits of washi tape to add more colour and texture to the page.
The last addition was a bit of green spray ink I had in a little Tim Holtz spray bottle. Think it might have been aquatint but not sure… anyway I gave a few spritzes and jobs a good’un!!!
This is the finished page. How lovely and fresh.
Hope that you like the finished page. I am pleased with it.
