I know, I know- it’s been forever since I posted anything- my house has been in an uproar, and I have just been really distracted by things lately and just haven’t created much art at all-but the last several days I have been KILLING IT! I don’t know what’s come over me- but I just have to share what I’ve been up to. And this is after I spent practically a week not sleeping ,not eating-couldn’t focus on anything useful- I completely stopped cooking dinner for days- I was a wreck basically. But now, thanks to ALOT of prayer and determination- I think I have conquered the beast and I’m back to almost full brain function! So, to prove it- I wanted to show you one of my favorite art journal techniques and how to apply it to a scrapbook page.
The first thing I did was paint the background grey, then mix some modeling paste with some red paint and scrape it over a damask stencil on top of the dried paint- here is the art journal page with this technique in the background. Here is the scrapbook page where I used the same background technique:
You can see the damask pattern here and there- over that I stamped a Donna Downey dress form foam stamp with black paint-rubbed some light blue here and there and laid down some papers and voila!
I hope this has helped you see how versatile these techniques really are and how you can use them in all sorts of art applications-Cheerio!!
