Art Journal - More pages from small red journal

I sprayed ink through a stencil for the first page in this book and then turned to a new page and stamped down the stencil which had lots of ink on it onto this page. So I had the negative of the stencil to work with. Then I used other rubber stamps, inks and markers to create this page.

For this page I sprayed ink through some lace to create the background. Then I did some stamping and sponging and drawing of the border to complete the page.

Working in an art journal gives you the freedom to experiment and I love to try new techniques. I took a paper napkin and mod podged the front and back of it to this page. Then I drew a freehand border with a black marker pen and then sponged acrylic paint through an onion bag for the green border. Lots of fun!
I hope you try some new experiments in your art work today.
Happy creating! :D

Trish! You have inspired me. I bought a journal at Michael's yesterday. They are having 50% on Canson books and pads. I dig all these pages! I especially like how you added texture to your birds.

Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
