Art Journal - Sept 17 2010

Howdy blogland...

Have been playing in my art journal again this week - finished another page this evening!  Had to use that new magenta paint so it would turn out magenta instead of red.  I LOVE this color!! 

Painted a background of turquoise and green with some extra yellow/green drippage.  Stamped TH foam flower stamps in magenta and then overstamped the smaller flower with gesso.  Then painted around the edges with a thin round paint brush with more gesso.  Used pen & ink to scribble sketch around the edges.  Had some grungeboard scraps covered with book text, so cut flower stems and leaves, and then did a waterwash over the text with green paint. 

Glued down the leaves with my new Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive - loving this too!  Then stamped the "HAPPY" on copy paper in black ink and glued down using new Liquid Scrap Dots - OK this stuff is AWESOME ---- thank you Donna Downey for the recommendations!  Helmar 450 is available HERE.  Liquid scrap dots HERE

Added the black border with Viva black pearl pen.  Available at eclecticPaperie - HERE.

All I can say is.... TGIF!!!  Have a lovely weekend!
