Nothing better than when I get to just play in my Art Journal.. When I made my other little flip out journal. I had this one open to rub off the DecoArt Andy Skinner code breaker stencil. I was using the DecoArt Media Line Black Gesso and I had it all over the stencil so I just kept going with it on each side of this background. I always seem to have a few things going at once. The blue background was rub offs from another stencil page I did. I then thought hmm think I feel like doing some stamping today and I have hardly used the terrific grab bag of stamps I got from Teesha Moore. So I stamped the girl and coloured her in with Dylusions and my waterbrush. Fussy cut her out and stuck her on. The wording across the top of her is a stamp from Teesha too it says. Real art has the capacity to make us nervous. Then I grabbed one of the artstronauts collage sheets and matched some colours cut and pasted. I love trees, so popped that one on and then just took a pen and drew it off the piece of collage onto the page. Added some swirls to the little blue heart with my Gelli roll pen to make it sparkly. Then I just did some doodling with my black Pilot pen. Used the white signo uniball for some dashes.. Wrote the quote that I thought suited the page. Quote says "Art is not what you see but what you make others see." So more fun with some coloured pencils too. Just for a bit more blue here and there and even a bit of shading with some Neocolour II around the girl. Liked the way it looks a bit sketchy around her.
Going to pop this over at Paint Part Friday.
