Hey everyone and a happy Friday to you all!
It's Michelle and I am back with an art Journal page in my fave Journal ATM an Art by Marlene 19x12, love the size and the fact you can take the pages out to work on.
So without anymore blathering here it is:


I started by laying down some colour using Dina Wakley acrylic paint in Eggplant, Olive, Peacock, and Marine, onto a "Gessoed" page.
I also used white Acrylic paint and wiped away with a baby wipe through a Carabelle Studio Stencil in random places.

The face is a stamp by Dina Wakley "Lovely Women", I stamped on tissue then attached to the page using Gel Medium. Once that was dry I started adding details with a fineliner and a Stabilo Pencil.

I added some watered down paint around the face and blew through a straw to create the spidery "drips". 

I stamped with a script stamp (Tim Holtz stamp Entomology), in places with an Archival ink pad in Black, and also an Antler stamp for the fine branch looking details.
I splashed around some Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Metallic paint in "Gold Rush" and also used the paint on the Antler stamp to add more depth around the face.

The Title and the Bug are both by Tim Holtz,  Entomology, and Worn Text Alpha Stamp. I added highlights to the bug and the title with a Posca Gold Paint Pen.
I then called the page done!
