So This weekend I decided to pull out all of my paints, sprays, inks, etc and work on my two ongoing art journals.
Since both of my books had lots of words still showing I decided to use some of Claudine Hellmuth's paints. LOVE!
It doesn't always cover completely, but once you add lots of background textures the words just magically sort of disappear into the background.
So for all of my pages I took out a lot of various stamps that I wanted to use and went to town using a variety of paint, sprays and inks Creating textures just in the background.
Then I used my Archival Black ink and stamped the images that I wanted in the foreground. LOVE the look of this.
This art journal is going to be my "wedding" journal. I'm going to put things that I will have/do at my wedding in there and just things that I want to remember.
I free-handed our names, and if you notice I used my white gel pen to put my doodle dots. You can see them on my name and not on Trent's. It makes a big difference when you start adding your own personality to your journal pages.
I haven't gotten to the personality part of these yet but the backgrounds are cool.
These are the pages of my other journal. Very similar but still different.
This is the Cover of my "wedding" journal. The book wasn't taking the inks well so I used Claudine Hellumth's gesso and painted the front and back cover.
Then I was able to use my Dylusions sprays and some texture stamps. Then use my archival black ink to stamp the image I wanted.
This is the back cover.
And this is the front Cover - LOVE how this turned out!
I hope you are enjoying this ART JOURNAL JOURNEY with me. I sure hope this inspires you to make one of your own.
Art journal journey still to be continued.......
