2016-01-26; Art Journal page #5
My partner has now received page 5 of our swap. Hopefully 3 and 4 will find their way to her. I’m a little worried as they were mailed out prior to this page.
Here is side 1: spots page. I started out putting dots of masking fluid on. next I added distress ink and sprayed. I tipped the page this way and that until it was full of color.
I also added white picket fence distress ink but didn’t move it around. I let it dry right where it was.
The rubber stamped circles in gold were added and then I rubbed the masking fluid off. Finally the sentiment.
Side 2 was created using walnut stain. I sprayed 3 times and then added a spray of water between each spray. I got this rich brown color. Once that was dry I added the texture paste.
When the texture paste was dry I pounced it with ink. To create the animal print look I used a fan brush and pounced the ink over all. When it was dry I brushed glitter glue over the raised texture paste.
And so you can see both sides, side by side.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that pages 3 & 4 have not disappeared forever…
