January Technique - Paint
This Week's Word - Relax
We're still on our paint technique for this month, but todays word is 'relax', something that I for one need to do more often!
I have decided to use an old A4 diary to house all my pages for this project, so whether they be scrapbook or more art journal focussed they will all be together, which is fine.
I started off by covering my page with some acrylic paint (parchment)
Next I grabbed some watercolour paints and roughly painted over the base paint in blues.
then I added some greens
To add some interest and texture I ripped some strips from an old book and stuck them down, used a lid with white paint on to add some circles and used paint on a piece of card to squish some paint patches onto the page too. I just had fun and did what I felt like to add texture to the pages.
I found a quote I wanted to use, typed it up, printed it out and stuck it the right hand page and added some journalling on a piece of notepaper. I printed out a small photo of my family and stuck this in too. I used a Jenni Bowlin paint dabber in cough syrup around the left edge and made circles across the bottom. I added an Elles studio tab to the top too. To finish off I used some Maya mist in silver and rose pink.
To add the word relax I lightly stuck down some letter stickers and then roughly painted over with white paint, then peeled the stickers off again. My finished page is below:
Hope you like what I've done and that it gives you some inspiration for your own projects too. Please do link us up with your page or project when you've done it!
