Believe In Your Dreams

 Hello and welcome to September and the start of Autumn.

This month it is my turn to host the challenge over at Country View Challenges and I want to use you Complementary Colours.

Complementary Colours are the colours on the colour wheel, which are on the opposite.

Farbkreis nach Itten

I made an art journal page and used orange and teal/blue.

I made a process video, so if you want - enjoy watching!

I started by glueing down some washi tapes, one from a Dollar store and the other two from Tim Holtz. Then I added some lace and prepared the surface with clear Gesso.
Now I took a stencil from finnabair and stenciled randomly with black Gesso. When dry I took another stencil, this time one from Tim Holtz, and spread Modeling paste through it and dried it.

Next I watered down blue and green Gouache to my weted background and then the orange Gouache. I also made splatters with blue and orange paint. To dull the colors a little bit, I went over the whole pages with matte wax in white. Then I randomly stamped a very old BoBunny word stamp here and there with black Versafine Clair ink.

I enhanced the structure of the stenciled area with a black brush marker and wiped it with my fingers around. Then I glued down the beautiful butterflies, stamped the Journal words stamp from Rubber Dance to white cardstock and cut out the words. I distressed the edges with black ink before I also glued them down.

Now I only had to make some white dots with a posca pen for more interest and last but not least I thought, the pages would need some black splatters.

I hope you like my journal page as much as I do!
Here are some close ups:

Now I am curious to see, what you will make for our challenge now.

I´ll be back in a few days and hope you will come back here again!

Thank you for your visit today and have a wonderful week!
