I've been working on Journaling.
This doesn't have much to say....except that to me, it looks like a piece of broken sky where you're peeking out into the black universe with stars.
This is done with a page from Finnabair's Artistic Journal that's 7x9 inches.
I start with a random layer of Heavy White Gesso, then 3 or 4 colors of Fresco Paint that I move around in a pleasing pattern.
(The problem with being a Midnight Artist is that the blues in my pictures are not quite "true." This really is more turquoise since it is Bora Bora from Freso Paints.)
The Harlequin Stencil with Red and Orange inks are added with a sponge square.
Then I sanded down the tops of the Crackle paste and made scratches throughout the piece.
The diamond shapes were highlighted with gel pens
More sanding and then I got out the Heavy Black Gesso and added some interesting marks.
I love the way the inks and paint get into the crackle.
Splatter some white inks onto the piece and spread with a credit card to make highlights and stars. Use a White Sharpie pen for more marks.
The next thing I did was add some stamping to areas with archival inks using the Pines and Messy Clear Stamps.
And last I added some more paint to clean up certain areas.
The "page" had been removed from the Journal and I just liked the edges with the black paint, so I trimmed it down, added more black paint to the edges and mounted it on white - then black mat board.
No, it's not going back into my journal, but probably on an easel on my bookcase.
Hope you're inspired to make a page of your own. Let me know what you think.
