With the work of our two shops, I let my art journaling go by the wayside. I'm determined this year to do better. This is a simple page I created to showcase my one little word for 2016.
The texture is created with a pale knife, Crafters Workshop Tile Texture stencil and Liquitex Super Heavy Gesso. I cut my word with Alterations Thinlits Celebrate dies. I used happy and love, cut the letters apart, and glued together the h, o, p and e. Sometimes we just have to make do, right?
The circles are paper scraps and the doodling was created with an ultra fine tip bottle filled with a mixture of Golden Airbrush Medium and Carbon Black fluid acrylic.
I had purchased a few distress markers and Tim Holtz distress marker Spritzer toward the end of last year. Thought I'd give it a whirl to add some color to my black and white design. I first scribbled on some color and blended to into the white with a water brush, then misted with my water sprayer and let the color run. Ooooh! I like this!
The marker colors are: Mermaid Lagoon, Faded Jeans, Lucky Clover, and Salty Ocean.
To finish it off, I used the Spritzer.
I'm off and rolling... HOPE I can keep it up!
Thanks for stopping by... I really appreciate your visit!
