Art journal page in contrasting colors
The weather has been awful lately- gloomy, rainy and cold. But despite all of that I’ve managed to create a happy, positive page:) I did it for the Designers’s Faves Challenge for Finnabair and I will tell you honestly I had no idea if I am gonna manage to put all the requirements together: glitter, metal and contrast:) But, as I always repeat to myself when I feel stuck, it’s good to go out of your comfort zone:) So here is my page and hope you’ll like it:)
I treated the page in with heavy gesso by Finnabair and added some stenciling (stencil: The Crafter’s Workshop-The Story) with modeling paste by Pebeo. After drying I added randomly some coarse grain texture paste, Art Stones and Mini Art Stones by Finnabair and some background stamping (Florileges- Bout de Texture). I added thread and glued on it torn die- cuts in form of grill and leftowers from my homemade fussy- cut flowers. For the metal parts I added brads in form of screws, I made wire stars and at the very end added two words on the metal plates, also attached with wire. On all of that I sprinkled Infusions pigments: Orange County and Violet Storms. Unfortunately because they have a lot of walnut pigment in them, I needed to dab off most of the violet paint as it started to turn into mud after spraying it with water. However, the orange color stayed quite strong and vivid. To save the page I decided to add Dylusions: Crashed Grape and a little bit of Pure Sunshine (to make small orange accents throughout the page). After drying the paints I added some doodling in the form of lines, added orange cabochons, violet stars and again some wire. To make the page more interesting I took my hole puncher pen and punched small square and star shaped holes onto the page:) At the very end I added some dots with 3D violet paint, some splashes with black acrylic paint from Pebeo and violet glitter to finish the page.
