Since I've been housebound this weekend, I spent some time playing in my Art Journal
I have been trying to keep up with the Documented Life Project Assignments
This wonderful group of Artists, share a Journal Prompt each Saturday, which gives you a technique as well as a journal prompt.
This week it was to create layers in your journal
I created oodles and oodles of layers
First I sprayed my pages with with Prima Bloom Spray in Glistening Waves
I then took a Dylusions Stencil and sprayed over in Bubblegum Pink (If you look closely, you can see the floral pattern underneath. I then used some Gesso To create some resist here and there and to tone it down a bit, I wiped on some vintage photo distress stain to tone down the brightness of the page.
I tore some shapes from some old book paper that I had laying around.
I then took Some Magicals and painted around the papers to bring some shadow and depth.
I created a custom ink pad using Dylusions Sprays in Grape and Bubblegum and stamped on the background with the following images from impression Obsession
Rose Leaf stamped in Gold
Heart Hug- The lady stamp- Stamped in Black and paper pieced
Splatter 1 (stamped in white acrylic paint)
Sketchy Chevron Border (stamped in Black)
The page was a little dark at that point, so I added some white paint dots and highlights
The sentiment reads:
The more you love your decisions, the less you need others' to love them
