Journey Of The Birds

Another page finished from my new venture into Art Journalling.

I loved the before but the after was so much fun to do. Printed the birds in black and white onto tissue paper then coloured in with acrylic paint and a Letraset 1.0 black pen, then shaded with my finger whilst still wet. Lots of shading with my finger on this page as I found it gave a better definition around the images. Stamped the large Vintage stamp from Artemio as a backdrop for the sentiment Joy Of Journey from Stampendous.

Had to use the frantage, plus whilst still hot did lots of finger dragging … must be something about getting my mits dirty!!! Blended a little Black Soot ink around the edges just to take away some of the whiteness.

The die cut background on the first page is a left over piece of grease proof paper.
It must have fallen onto the floor when I took out the original cardstock … used it to release the die easier on another project … but because it is as light as a feather, didn’t realise this had happened. Andrew found it and left on my desk. What can a girl do with such a flimsy piece but add to the background.

Hope you enjoy these pages, you can see the original post here.
