Here’s a recent art journal spread of mine –
I started the spread with a layer of newspaper strips that I added to the background pages. I then spread modeling paste on parts of the spread through a stencil.
When the page was dry, I applied gesso over it, and waited for this to dry as well. I then added some acrylics to the background, when I then spread around by spritzing water.
I followed this with some stamping–I got dye inks on a stamp and spritzed water over it before stamping, which gives a different end result. I then doodled some Zentangles using a fineliner, and colored the doodles with watercolor pencils and a water brush pen.
I added washi tape–mainly borders and some on the body too–as well as some marks using gel pens and Copic markers. For the quote, I used dye inks with a stamp, fussy cut, used oil-based color pencils on the strips, then adhered them to the background. Ta da!
With this spread, I’m joining these challenges –
