Fly

Here’s a recent art journal spread of mine –

Fly | Art Journal | Anita

I started this spread with a quick pouncing of acrylic paint over a stencil. I followed this with more acrylics and a different stencil, this time using the paint lifting technique. I think I just wanted to use random stencils, so I ended up just playing with them.

I used dye inks and stamps for the bird, the flora, and the quote / sentiment. I also used more stamps for miscellaneous borders at the edge of the composition. I outlined the quote with a black fineliner, and that concluded the spread. Ta da!


With this spread, I’m joining these challenges –
