Natalie here today with a little Art Journal page for you!
This one is all about layers - but layers of Moody black and layers of words.
Last month here in Australia, I released my very own range of Collage Papers so I thought I'd build on one and create a deep and dark page.
I started with a gessoed page and then used gel medium to adhere the collage paper to the page.
I then used a random script stamp to add some words with black archival ink followed by a stabilo stubby black pencil to add a wash across the top of the page.
Next I used the Words to Live Stencil by Carolyn Dube and a Black Spray ink to add a layer of words over the black wash. I masked off the face detail with paper towel so I didn't get any over spray.
Once dry, I used a black shimmer paint over the Sacred Words and Marks stencil by Jessica Sporn to create a new layer of words. Using the shimmer paint made the letter and words stand out and give it a bit of a shine.
For the focal point word on the page, I used a pale grey paint through the Seth Apter Unfinished stencil and then used a grey brush tip paint pen to add detail.
I finished by adding a few marks from the Floral Frolics Stencil by Wendy Brightbill around the page to tie in some of the colour I used in the title.
I am loving the moody feel to this page and love the layered letters and words!
Something a little different for your day.
Thanks for stopping by!
