Spending Time | Art Journal

[Challenge win: Winner at Paperbabe Stamps challenge]
[Challenge win: Winner at A Bit More Time To Craft Extra challenge]

Another recent art journal spread of mine. These pages had a bunch of gel print negatives on them from a previous session, so they provided a great starting point – no empty page blankness to contend with! šŸ˜‰

I thought I’d try playing with primary colors for this session, and here’s the result –

Spending Time | Art Journal | Anita

I added to the gel print negatives by using acrylics with stencils, and then stamped some ants. Since the ants weren’t as dark as I’d have liked, I traced over them with a fineliner. I outlined the dotted stenciled shapes with markers and a fineliner, and handwrote a quote. Ta da!


With this spread, I’m joining these challenges –
