Welcome ! For today's AALL & Create post I have made an artjournal spread. I used some of the new stamps for this; I really think that this release is the best so far, but I think that every time !
To start with I painted the pages with Dina Wakley paints and a brush. I used Lemon, Lime, Turquoise and Peacock. Next I toned it all down with white paint an my brayer. I then took the Heapza Hexagons stencil and stencilled first with white paint randomly over the pages..
I repeated the stencilling with the Lime and Turquoise paints.
After toning it down once more with white paint and my brayer I started stamping. I used the same-ish colours ink. I just use what I have; sometimes Versafine Clair, sometimes Distress Oxide inks.
After test more toning down, I added black paint around the edges with a pallet knife. Next I added some pieces of washi tape and black and white splatters. I decided the background was done.
Next I stamped my focal point and added a little colour to him. I used watercolour markers for this. I then cut him out.
I added some more washi tape for the crow to sit on.
I glued him down and added a Tim Holtz word chip as a sentiment. I thought it was quite good in combination with the washi tape.
I then called my pages done !
I hope you enjoyed my post ! Thank you for stopping by !
