Happy Friday everyone! Hope you will all be able to enjoy a nice weekend. We have gotten some snow overnight and it's still flurrying but thankfully it isn't supposed to amount to much. The springtime birds are singing away and the mourning doves are cooing as I awake each morning, and it is expected to really warm up with the next few days:)
Above is a close up of this journal page:
Serena Barton and it's one I use over and over. You can find my other examples here, here, and here along with links for the technique which uses reinker glazes.
Linking to Art Journal Journey (theme is "if you go down to the woods" ); and Paint Party Friday.
A new (to me anyway) technique I just found is this:
It's a faux yupo paper to play with inks on! This technique comes from Sandrine Pellisier. I have heard so much about the yupo but wasn't ready to buy any just to try it out. This gives you a very similar experience according to Sandrine.
Here's how it's done: Brush a coat of soft matte gel medium over watercolor paper or paper with some thickness to it. I used a scrap of plain old card stock. Once dry begin adding drops of ink around the paper along with some spritzes of water and watch the inks move and flow! I used reinkers here in my example. Very cool! Let me know if you try it, and do share it on your blog!
And now I have two cards to share. I used this sketch:
I made another as I need to have some more sympathy cards on hand:
Products: large note card, cardstock (Bazill Basics); patterned paper (Paper crate); rubber stamp
( Stampendous); Versafine Onyx Black ink (Tsukineko); flowers (Recollections); die cut leaf, small brad.
Linking my cards to Freshly Made Sketches and the Simon Wednesday Challenge (theme is "touchy feely- add texture to your creations).
Thanks so much for leaving your comments-much appreciated! I'll be around to visit you too:)
