Art Journal Friday!

Hi all it's Michelle back at you with another Friday Art Journal spread in my Art by Marlene Journal.
So with out further ado here it is, I am calling this one

"She's the Queen...."


So how did this one come about? 
Well the background was a result of a play session where I "swiped" a lot of backgrounds at once.
 This is what I do when I have no idea what I want to create. I just mess with paint until something comes to me, as a result I have ready made backgrounds ready and waiting for me to finish off....in this way I rarely have a blank page to stare back at me when I have an idea!


So the page had a swipe of paint by Dina Wakley in the colours: Eggplant, Cheddar and Fuchsia. Then I added some stencilled squares using the Cheddar paint and one of the stencils out of the Dyalog Stencil set.


I then used white and the Gilt paint with the Modern Lace stencil, using the reduction method of wiping away with a baby wipe through the stencil. This pushed all the layers into the background so it calmed the chaos a little.



I then used the same technique with the Black paint though the  Infinite Lace stencil to form a halo around my main focal image. 
I stamped  Prima's Creating in Faith Stamp: Esther three times, 2 on Dina Wakleys' Plain collage paper and the main figure on plain white cardstock.


I used Matte Gel Medium to attach the collage paper images to the page making sure I added a fine layer of the medium over the top so I could add a bit of colour later. I then wanted to highlight the main focal image so I added the old doily from my stash around her head so she stood out from the other images.

 
Then I set about colouring the girls with Art by Marlene Water colour Paint set: "Whimsy & Bright" and an Artline Gold Metallic Pen. Then it was just a matter of adding a few scribbles on their faces to make them a little different from each other (and because I could not resist doing it) with a  Black fineline marker. Added some splatters around the page then the title from a transparency by Scrap FX....(I attached the transparency with the gilt paint to make the print stand out from the background.....acrylic paint can make a good glue! Then to make the transparency less shiny I added a fine layer of Matte Gel Medium.

And my page was done!
