For my last August DT post for AALL & Create I have made an art journal page. I made this while watching Tracy demoing on Hochanda on the 10th. I loved some of her techniques and tried her brayer method to paint on the page for this project !
And here's how:
I started with a brayer to put the paint on the paper. I used yellow and turquoise, some of my favourite colours ! I then stamped the flower, once on the painted paper and part of it on white MM paper.
Next I stamped the background using Distress Oxides (Broken China and Twisted Citron) and Versafine Clair (Nocturne).
I then added modelling paste with the Lotza Dotz stencil, some strips of washi tapes and pieces of dictionary paper. This is something I used to do a lot and Tracy just reminded me how cool this is..
I then coloured the flowers on the separate pieces of paper with watercolours and cut them out. I adhered them on top of the ones on the page.
I then added splatters (I think this is an AALL & Create illness, we all do it!) and some more stamping; I also drew a broken line around the page. I decided against adding a sentiment.
I have used the following stamps/stencils:
Stamp set #203 - Flying High
Stamp set #211 - Count on you
Stamp set #207 Botanicals Modified
Stencil #39 - Lotza Dotz
