After a couple of failed attempts at keeping an art journal, I am totally embracing the process now. Err... I have like 5 journals. *winks*
Some nights I only create backgrounds with colorants...other nights I make more progress and actually complete pages. Like this one.:)
After applying gesso on my pages, I played with some Derwent Inktense blocks, blending the colours with a bit of water. Then I applied Liquitex Super Heavy Gesso with The Crafter's Workshop stencil.
After that, I doodled with Daler Rowney gesso and added some splatters with Tattered Angels Gimmer Glam. I varied the intensity of the gesso with water as the effect I wanted to achieve was a semi-opaque black.
Then I added some Tim Holtz rub-ons.
I went over my doodles with a white pen to really bring out the funky background design.
What do you think?
