Day 9 journal page uses distress stains, distress inks, and saran wrap dipped in water. As you know, distress inks are water soluble, so it makes for a great texture. The trees are a Club Scrap stencil and the “moon” is a foam stamp from Claudine Helmuth.
Day 10 page was supposed to use Inktense blocks, however, not having these, I used some watercolor crayons. After applying the crayons in squares, I watered them down and doodled over them with the Molotow markers.
I’ve been traveling so I’m behind in my Exploring Art Journaling 4 course. I had a few pages already done, but haven’t yet posted so today I’m posting day 6, 7, & 8.
Day 6 uses Gesso and Liquitex Fluid Acrylic paints. The fluid ink is applied first, followed by gesso through a stencil. I also used some wood veneer covered with white enamel.
Day 7 uses colored modeling paste. I used some older stash of pigment powders from Lindy’s Stamp Gang called “Moon Glows”.
Day 8 uses Pan Pastels and versamark over stencils. This medium puts on great color, but I found that the acrylic markers don’t glide well. I changed to using gel markers to see if that would glide better and they did. Perhaps next time I use pan pastels I’ll put down some gel medium. Thanks for checking out my pages, on to Day 9!
