Howdy Bloggers, Lisa here with a quick Friday mixed media update.
I love, when I'm creating, to add different layers to art journal pages.
It creates interest within the details and adds depth to every piece.
Today I'm sharing with you a fun step by step Art Journal page
that I completed yesterday, during a much needed down day.
Here is the piece.
Titled - I can't help it.
Here is what I did to create this page.
Using a small Dylusions Journal,
two hand carved stamps images applied using StazOn black ink
and a soft red Prismacolour pencil, I created a simple starting point.
"it's more about doing, rather than the end result, just play and float into your mojo"
Next a layer of paint.
A few scraps of off cut Atlas papers and Jane Davenport paint swatch paper.
to bring focus to the stamped leaf image and create focal points within the page.
I wanted to introduce a few colourful marks,
so I added a few dashes randomly with an orange Tim Hotlz Distress marker.
Now adding some Dina Wakley black paint to bring contrast and drama to the piece.
With a DWM stencil rubbed back, to take off the black paint from the page to reveal the pattern.
A this point I added colour to the leaves with a little Dylusions bubble gum pink acrylic paint,
a few leaves cut from an old piece of Basic Grey pattern paper, and
little detailing on the leaves with a white Posca pen.
To finish off, some some journaling with my trusty Fudeball,
a complete edging of black ink to the page and a flick of white paint
applied using a flooded white Posca.
Thanks for dropping by the blog, I'll be back next week with a fun update.
After a few days of recharge, visiting Galleries and
cafes in Sydney with my partner in Epic Adventures Peg.
Have a fun creative week artisans.
