Documented Life Project
January theme: the blank page and how to face it
Art challenge: Gesso
Prompt: the beginning is always today
I used super heavy gesso through a stencil to create a resist when I used the Dylusions sprays. Then had my fun with my birds! They are the scribbly birds stamp by Dina Wakley.
Journaling Krazy Island Style (JKIS)
January Week 2 - Animals
I created my background with acrylic paint lime green and opaque yellow, sprayed black homemade spray ( 50% paint, 25% airbrush medium and 25% water) through an alphabet stencil. I made a bird mask and used to block the background when I used black gesso. And finally the sentiment was written in black and white paint pen as well as the border.
Week 2 - Tag
Pretty much the same technique as DLP. I just added modeling paste through a scribble stencil. Because I used Dylusions sprays, the modeling paste picked up the color. At the end I cut the butterfly and sentiment, and glued them to the tag.
Week 2 - Just be
I started this one by applying a coat of gesso and using acrylic paint in burnt umber and quin. Nickel azo gold. I used my homemade black spray paint through a damask stencil and used a alphabet stamp to finish the background. The sentiment is a stamp by Donna Downey that I distressed the edges and glued with some ephemera. To finish the page I used a few rub ons.
