Here we go again. Another, painty, inky, stampy, sticky, doodly Art Journal page, and as promised here it is in step by step's. This is in my large Moleskine notebook, and the double spread is approx 11 x 17 in..
First I glued an old journal page to the left hand side. Yes it is meant to be stuck on upside down.!! well thats my story and I,m sticking to it..!!!
I then babywiped Butterscotch Adirondack dabber over the pages.
I laid a Crafters workshop template over one corner and sprayed through with Altered Originals spray ink in Granite.
Removed the template and blotted with kitchen towel
I flipped the template over and pressewd the negative image onto another journal page.
I then sprayed the Granite ink through a negative piece of Grunge board
And blotted with kitchen paper.
I mixed Granite ink, Blonde Moments sugar lilac pearl pigment and water into our mister and shook straight away to allow the pearls to emulsify in. I then sprayed quite heavy blobs and tipped the book up to let it run.
As it dries you can see the lilac pearl shimmering away. Fabby contrasts
I then applied my usual, never quite matching the underneath, style of doodling with a black pen.
Then adding surface gesso. First adding rings with a plastic pot.
and then the Dyan wiggle with a splodger.
When the gesso had dried, I slightly oversprayed it with the pearly ink solution.
All the image were from my download sheets, and I turned them into black and white before printing. After cutting them all out I started arranging them on the page.
I stamped the Stampotique girls head onto white card with black Archival ink.
When happy with all the elements I stuck everything down with Claudine Hellmuth multi medium.
Looking good so far.!!!
Nothing is finished in my world till its " framed ",, so a doodled border was called for.
This is my favourite little stamp of Tim's.
You always need a crow with a pointy hat, it's the law..!!!
and a quote...this one came from the magazine I was flicking through.
So there we are...left page
And a partridge in a pear tree...well nearly, lmao...
