Today, on 12 Months in View, Susan Ernst shared her knowledge of plants and in particular the daffodil and then took us through a step by step tutorial to produce a journal page.
People who know me well know that I never end up with what the tutor says, so it will come as no surprise that my page and technique isn't quite the same as Susan's.
I found the Robert Herrick poem and printed it out. I tore round the poem and stuck it in my journal. I wish I had used gel medium rather than glue stick!
I followed Susan's instructions regarding the acrylic wash and the tracing of my image. Then I coloured it in with Inktense pencils and used a paintbrush and water rather than a waterbrush. I used a black chinamarker type pencil to go over the pencil lines and swiped a lemon Distress Inkpad over the page. I stamped the word onto the page.
I am really pleased with the result. It isn't a style I would normally use but I really enjoyed it. Thanks Susan.
Thanks for stopping by.
