I decided to play in my new art journal again.
I glued down some bits of old map using Soft Gel under and over the map.
I mixed some Primary Elements Royal Orchid with Clear Granular gel and
applied it to the page through a stencil and left it to dry overnight.
I sanded off some of it where I had been particularly heavy handed! Then I covered over the whole page with black gesso and some water.
Before the black gesso dried I wiped some of it off with a wet wipe. Then I sprinkled some Primary Elements Indian Copper onto the page.
I sprayed it with water and the pigment ran wherever it wanted when I lifted the page vertically. As this had worked I did the same on the other page.
I sprinkled the page with Primary Elements Lovestruck and sprayed with water.
After I dried the page I sprinkled it with Primary Elements Green Pearl.
When I sprayed the water it reactivated the Lovestruck.
However when I dried it the colours mixed together. I mixed some Primary Elements Teal Zircon with the glaze and dry brushed it onto the raised parts.
So what to do now?
Well, I stamped with Black Archival although it didn't show up too much. I glued 3 Tim Holtz Pen Nibs. I tore a piece of paper napkin and glued just the top layer to the page and then stuck a saying on the top.
It's all a bit dark and the photos don't show the colours too well. However I enjoyed playing and next time I'll use white gesso!
Thanks for stopping by.
