White Space -The Sequel

White Space -The Sequel

So, another practice in white space in one of my Dylusions Art Journal.

Again, I started by laying down some gesso- then did some circle stencils with fluorescent paints- the positive and negative side of the stencil. Then used gesso to layer some Julie Fei-Fan Balzer Funky Tag stencil.

Some more gesso smeared around followed by some stamping with Michelle Ward’s shutter stamps- some green gold Golden acrylic paint-and magenta Ultrech acrylic on the inside and outside corners. I did some random pseudo writing with my uni-ball- some dots of Liquid Pearls and finally blobs of black india ink spread around with a straw.  A few other miscellaneous stamping and voila!

I have prolly left a step or two out-but you get the idea I hope.

Here are a few other photos including some close-ups.

Happy Anniversary-the Sequel

Happy Anniversary-the Sequel

So- this is the card I gave my ex for our 3rd and last anniversary. It is what it is- I used a manila folder as the base and glued some wrinkled tissue paper on it with mod podge for my substrate. From there- just basically a lot of acrylic paint and some gelatos and whatnot.

Not much of a tutorial, I know-but i wanted to share it with you in case you see something here that you might want to try on your next art project.

I did the lettering with black india ink and a paintbrush.

Thanks for playing!
