Mixed media Journal Page - Flower Fun
So I had so much fun doing this page.... I had actually done something with paint dripping on these 2 pages - but didn't like the way it came out... So Gesso to the rescue....
See below for the progress and supply list.
See above the gesso process when I started it.
Below is when it was done and I started adding texture and supplies.
Above - I add Bazzill Basics Just the Edge 12" Cardstock Strips Perfectly Pleated Dictionary - this was something I had in my Stash for years.... Finally opened them up - I cut them in half only used 2 of them - but I love the texture it added.
I also grabbed a bunch of Close to my heart Stamp pads that I have had for years and just never opened.... I opened them and just stamped the entire pad onto the page in all different colors.
I then took my favorite free tool... my empty toilet paper roll and pressed it into purple paint and stamped it all over the page...
I then drew petals around a few of them to make them flowers.
I started coloring the circles in with different acrylic paint colors
Used a thin paint brush and drew stems.
I then pulled out my pan pastels.
I filled in the blank space between the flowers
Purple and Green
I loved the light parts of the pan pastels - on it - but I also added down water down acrylic paints in parts of it.
I then outlined everything with a black market to have things stand out.
And added some red alphabet rub ons.
Below is the final outcome...
I hope you enjoy this art journaling pages....
