Michelle with you today with a few art journal pages created with lots of Artified goodies.
I had loads of painterly fun creating, so much so, I failed to take picks of my process, so sorry but I promise to remember for next time!
First up is "Shine Shine Shine" using some Geli printed papers, Washi Tape, vintage papers, stamps, stencils and paint a plenty!
I started with gesso and paper layers then added more paint through stencils, stamping and Washi Tape then used the black as a unifying colour to bring all the elements together. I applied paint with a palette knife brushes and my fingers till I was happy with the composition.
Here is a little bit of detail for you:
The focal point was made with a Kraft card and a few Dina Wakley stamps.
Next up "Me...".
For this one I made a stencil out of a magazine image, then used that shape to create my figure out of old book paper.
I had a bit of fun splashing paint around and stamping on a Gessoed page, then stuck the figure down with Matt Gel Medium.
I added some paint to the figure through a few stencils and added details with a Stabillo all pencil and paint pens.
The shadow around the figure I did with the pencil and a touch of water applied with my finger to blend.
A few more stamped images and the page was done!
Now for my last page to share, "Be....".
Used a lot of scraps here and had some fun with paint and stamps, this one was very quick and easy to create.
I started by adding old book paper shapes across the Gessoed page, then added my paint colours with my palette knife. I then rubbed the paint off through a stencil with a baby wipe to leave interesting patterns underneath.
Lots of layers of paint and stencilling created the background, then it was time to focus on the foreground of the page.
I wanted something simple but I also wanted it to cover a lot of, what was, a very busy background.
I went through my scrap paper stash and came up with some old black lined paper....do not ask me where I got that from....no idea!
I punched out the circles with an old punch and laid it across the double page so that the circles framed just enough of that busy background. I then added some paint on a stamp to make the paper part of the composition and added some stamped words and the page was done!
