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!
