Do you know that feeling? Your just sitting in front of your journal and all of the sudden the page is done and you don’t know really what you did to get there? This was one of those art journal pages that came together just like that. I remember that I wanted to test my new stencilgirl products and that’s about it 😛
Basically, I was using my clean off page from my last gel press session for the background. You know the ones were you’re sitting hours creating one gorgeous mono print after another and the one that you end up using is the page where you cleaned your brayer on 😀
Anyway, I painted the aqueduct onto that page using a white gel pen and adhered the page into my art journal. Then I added white and green paint to the edges of the page as well as through some other stencils from which I don’t know the exact name anymore.
Then I stenciled the mask onto another page from my gel press session, fuzzy cut it out and adhered it on top of the journal page. Now I added some ink, colored some of the stenciled areas and added a few shadows here and there. The mask also needed a face and that’s it – that’s all I remember… I like it though. It’s different, but still interesting enough (that’s why I wanted to share it with you).
So what’s your favorite way of creating art journal pages? Like this? Or do you prefer planning the layout before starting?
