Tired of my art journalling “very much beginner” pages yet??
Last night before I went to bed I thought I would give the new Art Journal (the A5 one) a test run and threw down some yellow and burgunday paint and rolled it all out with a brayer. Oh and I did some glimmer mist too, but that was a lost cause on wet paint, LOL. I let it all dry overnight, then today I have been playing around with it. Really I had no clue what to do with a very reddish background with some yellow through it.
Anyway, long story short, I wiped some Gesso over the top part of the page (to tone it down a bit) with my finger, did some stencilling, oh no sure if you can see up the very top right hand corner I sprizted with glimmer mist a cut out of umm like a dandelion (thanks Mary W again for sending me some cuts of your dies). I stamped the heart on a dictionary page in Ranger Plum (my fave), glimmer misted the dragonfly to death, LOL, with Turquoise then maybe went a little bit overboard with the glossy accents on the heart, leaves, stem etc… but oh well.
Then added the words – Yes they are rubons. You know what? I thought those rubons were dead and buried in my stash, but seems they work well for art journalling pages!
Anyway I tend to ramble, so will stop now.
Thanks for taking the time to have a look. I hope I can improve over time LOL. Just click on the pic for a better view.
