Today I wanted to share with you a my newest journal page, and I have to say, it is my favorite yet. It is my favorite because it was done over time. Everyday I added something new. That is what I love about journaling, you start out with a blank and really never know what it's going to look like in the end. This was a blank watercolor paper, that I covered with a piece of word DP. From there I covered it with Gesso, and then added Dylusions sprays. If you have never used Dylusions sprays and Gesso together, I have a word of advice, ALLOW drying time. From there, I added cut out some circles, form a piece of gesso DP that I had previously done, and I glued them down to create the flowers. I did the same thing with the leafs. I created the flowers with acrylic paint, and quick flicks. The rest was done with black marker. The background was created using Gesso, and Dylusions spays like I said, in addition, I a mix of rubber stamps, and some plastic templates, and when it was all said and done this is what I had. It went from a blank canvas to a colorful picture, with no rhyme or reason!!!
Well, folks, that is it for me tonight. I must get some sleep for this upcoming weekend of kids Birthday Parties. Wish me luck! Happy Creating!
