Here is the second page in my art journal that I posted to the art journal ning site. I know my posts have been short, but I am still recovering and my shoulder is screaming at me this morning. So, hopefully I will be back to normal soon.
This week's study was on Street Art or Graffiti. This was a challenge for me because I do not do graffiti, have never done graffiti, so I winged it. Still not sure how graffiti my page is...........but I tried.
Oh, the background! I started with white gesso, then acrylic paints. I wasn't happy, so I used a credit card and scrapped on more gesso. I used a stencil, paper towel and water to remove the paint from the stencil area which created the "flower" areas. Then i decided black was needed and I wanted a stencil with little circles. So I pulled a scrap piece of card stock and started punching holes. I used two different sizes of hole punches and made a "design". Then I used the Tim Holtz Ink Applicator with Distress Ink Black Soot. Over-all I like it. I may at some point go back and add some stamping here and there, but for now it's done. If I do add stamping, you will see a re-post with the updated page.
