I am posting my DT piece for Roc Nicholas today so that means it must be the 1st of March. Doesn't time fly ? For this month I decided to do an art journal and here it is:
I started with gesso on the pages and then closed the book while it was still wet. This creates a lovely texture in the gesso. Unfortunately you can't really see it in the picture.
Next I sprayed Lindys Stamp Gang sprays on it, green and blue, dried it with my heat tool and repeated this until I was happy. I also dripped some more of the same ink on the pages. Next I used a Prima Stencil and blue Archival ink to create a little interest. You have to really look as it is very subtle.
I then stamped the Chandelier and coloured the hearts and candles with a white paint pen, so I could put some colour over the top of that. When it dried I used Big Brush markers to colour the hearts pink and the flames yellow. The beads hanging on the chandelier were made with Liquid Pearls. The sentiment was stamped directly on the page and coloured with Big Brush Markers in the same (ish) shades as the background.
Next I used the Unleash Yourself stamp with blue and black ink and used part of it as a background stamp. Bird Princess was stamped on white card stock and coloured with Copics for the skin and Big Brush Markers and pencils for the rest. She was cut out and adhered to the page. I then coloured some book text with the same colours Big Brush Markers and stamped the flower from Daisy Head on it several times. They were cut out, shaded with pencils and more Liquid Pearls added in the hearts.
These were then glued to the page and that finished it off.
These great stamps are available from www.Stampotique.com
