This page started out with a coat of gesso. Then I took a magazine image of a girl and lightly traced the shape and features. I took an oak leaf stamp and covered it with two colours of gelatos, spritzed it with a mist of water and stamped it several times on the background. Then I painted with some acrylic paint and put a stencil over the wet paint and rubbed off the paint in the design of the stencil. This is called reduction stenciling. Then I took another stencil and sponged some ink through it. After that I drew in the girl's face with a stabilo pencil, which is water soluble, and took a paint brush and painted in those black lines. Then I used watercolour paints to paint in the face and hair. I wrote the message in black marker.
This page was a lot of fun and is my entry for week 4 of Journal52.
I hope you're having fun too! :D

I framed the picture of my husband and added it to the page. Then I wrote the text in marker.
Keep smiling!!! :D

I joined a group on Facebook called Jouranl52. We are being given an art journal prompt every week for the year 2014. This mixed media page is my week 1 page for the prompt Up, Up and Away. I have used paints, stencils, tag, stamps, markers, mesh tape, ink sprays, and some bling.
Why don't you come and join us? I hope to see you there. Let me know if you join. :D
