Speaking of Art Journaling, this is how we are starting this week. Michelle is here with us and made a fantastic AJ page for you...
To make the page I created the background by brushing small patches of TH Distess Inks to cover two adjoining pages then brushed Vintage photo through the stencil at the bottom of the pages.
I found a silhouette picture on the internet and printed it the size I wanted and used this as a pattern for cutting the silhouette out of copy paper.
I positioned the head on the left hand page and marked where the stencil pattern stopped and scribbled a line across the head and the pages in black permanent pen.
I then stencilled Black Soot ink through the stencil after masking below the scribbled line. I then masked above the line and brushed three colours of ink onto the rest of the head. This was then stuck in place on the page.
I then stamped the PaperArtsy stamp Mind matters and completed the page by using the words of the stamp to inspire my journalling which was written with a white sakura pen.
A really simple page which I thoroughly enjoyed making!
To create the journal page Michelle used
The Crafters Workshop template - Webbing
