Today I want to share with you my second project for the February challenge at Country View Challenges. This month the theme is "Be Sentimental".
This time I made a Art Journal page.
This is what I did:
I chose a page from one of my art journals, which was already prepared with some stamping and parts of old book pages. I went over it with some Gesso and when it was dry, I stamped a heart from a Rubber Dance stamp set with embossing ink and heat embossed them.
Next I used my Marabu acrylic spray paint. I took red, magenta and lime green.
The next step first looked a little bit ugly - but wait, until you see the end result.
I took black Gesso and spreat it on some parts of the page with a brush. I also made some marks with the brush on the edges.
The black Gesso was still wet, so I took a knitting needle to create some doodling. I drew some spirals. The result remids me on a artwork, childs love to make with black crayon. Do you remember these magical pictures?
The Gesso had to dry and meanwhile I picked out a fitting paper for the focal point. I used one from the bunch of Gelli prints I made last year. I sketched a heart and cut it out.
To make it stand out more on the page I surrounded it with a black posca pen and doodled white points. I then used a little heart stamp from another Rubber Dance stamp set and stamped it randomly onto the heart with Magenta Hue Archival ink.
I glued down the heart to the page with thin foam tape, did some more doodling with white posca pen and some more background stamping with black Archival ink and an old script stamp from LaBlanche.
Then I stamped the sentiment (Rubber Dance) with embossing ink direktly to the page and heat embossed it with black nuvo fine detail embossing powder.
Here are some details:
I hope you like my page and feel inspired to make something for the challenge!
