Today I am going to share my favorite Art Journal page so far...
...and it all started with a blank page.
I love opening my journal up and looking at a blank page... so empty and so ready for so many possibilities!
Using Matte Medium, I covered both pages in various pieces of scrap paper.
Mixing Modeling Paste with ColourArte Silks, I created a two-toned texture using a stencil from Faber-Castell.
I knew I was going to be adding a ton of color, so to protect my stenciling, I painted Gloss Gel Medium over it, once it was dried.
I then proceeded to go absolutely crazy with color! Using my Silks and several different techniques from straight to paper, to using it as a wash, to mixing with my Multi-Medium.
I also added a little more stenciling...
I started this page with a very specific quote in mind...
Here it is added:
I chose a Bird of Paradise because of the meaning behind the flower:
" Joy through challenges and successes alike."
I sketched it out and then colored it in with the Silks.
Here is the completed page. It makes me happy every time I see it!
Until next time...
