Grab a blank journal page
Nothing better than a blank page just waiting for you to fill it with something wonderful.
Gesso is an acrylic binder with chalk (calcium carbonate) added to it. This makes a wonderful surface for painting and other waterborne media when your pages aren’t technically suitable for water.
Hmmm… slightly uncertain what I’ve done here, but I believe I first put down an acrylic wash (if not it’s watercolor), then I grabbed a sponge and made accents with pastel colored acrylics before I added silver glitter glue and stamps. Pretty 🙂
And this is where I run into problems… When I have a blank page I can run with it. Nothing is wrong and anything goes. Once I have a background… well then my options are limited. I need to do something that goes with the background. Don’t screw it up. Maybe it’ll look like crap… angst. I did this background back in July. I’ve been waiting for inspiration. I added a photo.
Not too shabby. For some reason the face makes me think of Billie Piper. The face is made using water soluble color pencils, the squiggles are water soluble wax crayons.
