Hello! It's Rachel here today with an art journal page using stamps, paint, ink sprays and more!
This year I have been following the Colour Me Positive Art Journal Challenge organised by Lulu Art in Queensland. Anyone can participate, you can sign up here to receive the weekly prompts. This week the prompt was 'Trust Your Intuition'. Here is my page that I created using those words as inspiration:
This journal page started as a leftovers page in my journal, where I'd wipe excess paint, lay down stencils that had ink all over them and paint from brayers. To turn it into a finished piece of art, I brought in some common elements by stenciling the Plastic Canvas in 3 sections with black paint, then stenciling white texture paste through the same stencil. Fronds from the Carved Leaves Vol 1 Rubber Stamp Set were stamped along the top and bottom borders of the page using Archival Jet Black ink. The large Butterfly from the Wings Stamp Set was stamped in Archival Jet Black ink.
The human figure in the background was added by spraying Crushed Grape Dylusions Spray through a Dina Wakley stencil from The Crafters Workshop. I love how the paint layers underneath resisted the spray so the colour only shows in some areas.
'Trust' was stamped with an old Lil Davis foam set using Dina Wakley Media White Paint and edged with a Staedler Aquarelle pencil. The words 'your intuition' were stamped onto white card and adhered using Mutli Matte Medium and edged with the Aquarelle pencil. I used an Aquash brush to blend the pencil lines out to create shading.
