I can't believe it is almost 2016 ! Hasn't this year flown by ? I think it has gone really quickly.
Today, besides about pondering about the year going by, I managed to make an art journal page and I would like to share it here:
This was great fun to make. I started out with a piece of white card stock on which I glued a few bits of printed tissue paper. I then used a stencil and some model paste to add the circles.
When this had dried I painted the whole page with white gesso.
Next I dried it again using my heat tool. Yes, I am very impatient...
I then used two Lindy's sprays (Baby Blue Eyes Aqua and Afternoon Delight Denim) to colour the page. I dried this with the heat tool too. I like that you can still see some of the tissue paper underneath. I stamped the background with 'Fax to Wolfgang' but only sparingly and then stamped 'Giorgio' and the little 'chick' from the 'Starbird with chick' on white card stock. I reversed the chick as it was looking in the wrong direction. I coloured them with my Copic Markers and cut them out, removing the seashell that Giorgio is normally holding so I could place the chick in his hand instead. I adhered them both to the page and then found this quote in my 'quote book' (a lot of pieces of A4 paper full of scribbled quotes that I found on Internet and stapled together) that I thought would go really well with this scene. I typed it on my old typewriter, adhered it to the page and doodled around the strips.
I used only three Stampotique stamps for this page:
Thank you for stopping by !
