This is my post for the Rubber Dance Art Stamps Blog today. I created an Art Journal Page.
Today I'd like to share a Christmas Art Journal Page with you.
For this page I started by covering the pages with gesso and played with my Gelatos to create a basic background. I used the Gelatos Lemon, Tangerine, Red Cherry, Snow Cone and Metallic Mint. To create the white stars on the left I used one of my favourite Gelato techniques: I wiped away the Gelato color through a stencil with a wet baby wipe.
The white snowflakes on the right are doodled with a white pen. To finish my background I stamped some images of the Pines Fir Yew stamp set and the Winter Wonderland stamp set from Rubber Dance. I used my Stamper's Big Brush Pen (turquoise) and my Archival Ink Pads (Jet Black and Monarch Orange).
Die Wörter "Warm Winter Wishes" hab ich am PC ausgedruckt. Die Schriftart nennt sich "Head Case". Ich hab jedes Wort ausgeschnitten und mit Distress Ink "spiced Marmalade" eingefärbt. Mit einem schwarzen Sift hab ich um jedes Wort einen Rahmen gemalt.
I printed the "Warm Winter Wishes" with my PC - the font is called "Head Case". Another option would be to handwrite the words on your own. My handwriting is not the best, so I prefer printing it. I cut the words out, colored the pieces with Distress Ink "spiced marmalade" and drew a border arround every word.
For the two snowmen I cut out some circles of old book paper and build my frostys by adhering the circles to the page. I sketched them with a black PITT Artist Pen. A nice feature of the PITT Pens is, that you can smear the color at the beginning because it does not dry immediately! I add also some Gelato coconut to draw the snowmen white.
