So I’m a little late with my Art Journal Thursday Share today. And why is that Kim? I hear you ask…Well, I thought I would make a quick video of the technique I used for today’s art journal share, and I kind of thought about it right at the last minute of course. But once I had the thought I just could not let it go. Mmm, my obsessive tendencies might be showing!
Here is the page and it is another one from a recent Fiskars Fuse demo, got my last demo for the month in Croydon Hobbycraft this Saturday by the way.
I used two Fiskars Fuse dies for this one, the butterfly and a flower to use as my templates.
Then I finished with a bit of journal spilling with tiny writing in between the images. You can see that I’ve already scribbled and used this page before but I thought that all added to it so didn’t try to hide any of the stuff that was already on the page.
So here is the video that made me a bit late with my post today. It is speeded up, I mean I don’t really work that fast – I wish!
I used a gessoed page and I drew around the die cuts with the Stabilo All Surface Pencil. Then went back over the pencil marks with Kuretake ZIG BrusH2O Waterbrush, love the way the water deepens the marks.
Next up I add some colour with the waterbrush and some Derwent Inktense Pencils and work around the black lines. If a little bit of the black gets added into the colour that is fine too, all adds depth doesn’t it?
There you go my share today. Please feel free to share your journal makes and comments below.
Catch you later.
