This is a different day for me, where as a mother that has children that have a father that is not around I have to be dad as well as mom. It reminds me of how time flies. I was able to muster up a little time in the studio today to work on my first page of my larger journal, I know...dont fall over. In this journal, I will be recording quotes that I love and have a meaning and create pages around it. I have discovered that I need new pens, mine are nearly dried up.
First, I started with putting down Tattered Angels Shimmer and Chalkboard Spray, creating many layers of matching colors in the red and orange color range.
Then grabbed a template to lay down as the background. Used spray to highlight the stencil.
I added a second stencil to create the clock and bee, then outlined the gesso'd areas. I added Tattered Angels High Impact Paint to color in the clock numeral letters. Filled in other areas with TA glaze. The pen and inked edges are with Imagine Crafts pen and ink.
To finish it off, I added my brand new dandelion stamp from IndigoBlu. I love dandelions, they remind me of some great childhood memories.
I really am enjoying my new journal journey, it is a great way to do pieces of art a little at a time.
