Another colour wheel day and complementary colours this time with Gio and this beautiful Art Journal page. Look at all the details on there, how she did her journaling, the doodling on her sleeves and ring on her finger, the little heart on the camera lens... love it...
What do you think? Have you tried Art Journaling yet?
An AJ page, with a bit of scrapbooking (I used a picture of me of 2010 Halloween). I used the complementary colours: Purple, Green and Orange.
When dry I covered the background with Claudine Hellmuth Gesso spreading it with an old credit card. This add some texture to the page.
Once this is dry, I drew the camera tracing out the same credit card, then I coloured the page with TH Distress Ink and TH Distress Stains. I sprayed with water, I blotted with a wipe and I dried everything with the heat gun.
I painted the camera with TH Distress Inks using a Zig BrusH2O Waterbrush. I add some details with a permanent black pen. I put the picture on the page and I traced out the silhouette with a pencil and then with TH Distress Ink black soot and the waterbrush.
I stamped the background with Andy Skinner stamps: Antiques using distress ink and Emerald Archival ink.
I stamped the journal with Crafty Secrets: Artsy Alphabet stamp and TH Distress ink Dusty Concord
I glued the picture to the background and I doodled it with a white permanent marker. I pat lightly here and there with Versamark ink pad and I sprinkled some Cosmic Shimmer Blaze Embossing powder: raspberry violet and I melted it with the heat gun, to add more texture.
I glued to the bottom of the page some torn gessoed pieces of old book page.
