I am participating in an art journal page swap where I have specific prompts to follow so I thought I would turn on the camera and film the process while I created this layout.
I started off by grabbing my Draw and Wash Paper Pad by Art Spectrum and my Ken Oliver Colour Bursts and these will be my starting tools.
To make the background, I used my Colour Bursts in:
- Cerulean Blue
- Alizarin Crimson
I did mist the page with a fine mister both before and after applying the CBs.
I added more colour with my Distress Crayons.
I also added gesso through a punchinella stencil for more texture.
Add collage elements.
Here I added tissue paper ...
..and book pages.
I used Tim Holtz Paper Dolls as my elements to apply 1, 2 and 3 of people.
I decided on this layout I the end.
I felt it told a better story.
To add the sentiment, I used chipboard alphabet stickers.
Here I coloured them in with my Vintage Sepia ink pad.
To finish off my page, I added more fibres using hessian as well as darkened the edges of the page with more Distress Crayons.
I also added some more sentiments using Tim Holtz sticker clippings.
