Hello and Happy Friday!
Earlier this week I was up on the Frog Dog Studio blog with an Art Journal page!
not sure if you've had a chance to play with the Clearprint vellum yet,
but if you get the chance, please do. I really love the light weight
feel of the paper, yet it handles all mediums very well. I've had no
torn or ripped paper, and I have been embracing the 'wrinkling' effect
when it becomes wet.
To start, I taped 2 sheets together (with Artist tape) to create a larger canvas.
I added some ephemera to the background, by adhering it with Matte Medium.
I started adding color with Fresco Finish paint, and Fireworks spray. Love how these 2 look together.
I also added Pumpkin Soup (Fresco Finish Paint), and some stamping for texture.
Once I create a base background, I hand-drew randomly shaped squares on my page.
I colored the shapes in with several colors of wax pastels and blended a bit.
decided I didn't like the bold colors of the wax pastels, so I watered
down Cotton Candy (Fresco Finish Paints) and painted in the squares.
You can still see peeks of bright color through the paint.
I also outlined the squares with a Stabilo All pencil and de-fused the line with water.
I continued to add texture and layers with more stamping, doodling, and painting.
And the finished page! Love the color and simplicity of this page.
I hope you enjoyed my piece of art! What have you created recently?
Thank you for stopping by!
