Just a quick post today to share with you another double page of my Art Journal that I've been working on for a week. Finally finished after all the drying time and interruptions. A good friend suggested that I enter this in the current SUMMER OF COLOUR Week 5 challenge at Twinkle, Twinkle like a Star blog This is my first entry in this challenge and what I like about it is that you only have to use the specified colours, other than that you are free to create whatever you like.
When I found this lady in a magazine I decided to do something very feminine and whimsical. I layered the background with elements from some paper napkins using clear Gel Medium and then added some pink, green and gold Gelatos. Then I added some texture paste with a stencil and a script stamp. Once all that was dry I then used water colours with a paint brush.
I really love the water colours that I have. They are so vibrant! I then added my quote and butterflies and went around everything with various pens. I added some perfect pearls to the lady's necklace and headband.
Once again I had so much fun with this process. I love all the experimenting and use of different textures. Keep an eye out for next month's ARTastic challenge, you may just see another art journal page that I created. Thanks for dropping by :) xx
