Hope the month of March has been awesome for you.
Oh my they are such inspiration. So because of feeling inspired by them I had a play in my journal.
I also have been playing and self teaching a little abstract acrylic art. So I tackled it again in my journal.
With Lisa in my head and the desire to create I made this.....
I think I’ve said it before, but the freeness of art journal is relaxing and exciting. You never quite know how it’s going to turn out.
Once I had layered my base paints which included Dylusions white acrylic and art anthology in silve , I splashed liquitex carbon ink around and at the time thought I had ruined it a little by being to heavy handed with it.
But this is what is so great about this process of journal, you can just keep building. So I then splashed liquitex titanium white ink as well.
Then added some Dylusion orange and ranger distress collage medium into the mix, this ‘softened’ the black splashes a little.
Now came the stenciling and stamping.
Once all my ‘messy creative’ was complete, I added to the page with a couple of we r memomory keepers Chipboard frames And sitting in and around these I used Tim Holtz paper dolls to add a bit of curiosity to the pages.
Then I added a few older stickers I’ve had for years to the page and finished with some more stamping on the frames and liquitex splats around to pull it all together.
When I started these pages I thought I had totally wrecked it but.....the end result makes my heart smile.
If you have yet to try this form of creativity, I highly recommend it. It allows the inner creative out. You might be pleasantly surprised. I know I am.
I hope I can inspire you a little with my video of the process also.
Till I see you all in April....happy scrapping.
