What’s Up Wednesday July 13, 2016
Hey everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful, sunny day, where ever you are! I had so much fun creating this art journal project for today’s post.
I used my media silicone brush to apply some gesso to prime my Dylusions Art Journal pages and then applied some Calypso Teal and White Linen Dylusions paints with a baby wipe. Once that was dry, I stenciled a leaf print onto both sides of the journal using Liquitex Basics acrylics in Bright Aqua Green, Titanium White, Brilliant Yellow Green and Phthalocyanine Green.
I decided to sketch a face behind the leaves on the left side of the journal. I then went ahead and applied a combination of Liquitex Basics acrylic paint in Light Portrait Pink and Unbleached Titanium to create the base of the face. I used a pouncing brush stroke to create a textured finish on the face. I created the shadows using Raw Umber and Unbleached Titanium. I highlighted the nose, forehead and chin with Titanium White and the other skin tones. I used Cadmium Red Medium Hue on the cheeks. I used Mars Black, Titanium White and Light Blue Permanent on the eyes. I love these Basics paints by Liquitex! They have a wonderful texture and the colors are amazing!
I finished the layout with a variety of stencil work using some pastes and then I journaled about an upcoming vacation, which was really the inspiration for this project.
Have you tried art journaling yet?? If you haven’t, you should! It is so much fun, and trust me, you do not have to be an artist to enjoy the process. This is a hobby that I find to be the best stress reliever around! I just love it!
