Art Journal Listomania
Do I make lists? Endlessly. Electronically and on paper. Am I more organised - not really? But at least when I write a list I feel I will eventually tackle whatever is on the list. As you might have guessed this week's prompt was all about lists. I sprayed a thin layer of dylusions lime green, jade and blue sky inks onto the page trying to avoid the shopping list stuck onto the page.
The list was created by my daughter before we went shopping yesterday for baking supplies. I stamped all over the page using Shabby Shutters, Faded Jeans and China Blue using a TH sentiment. The final one I stamped in black archival ink. I painted the TO DO Lists with water colours and doodled around and in the letters. I then created a mask and part stamped Angel Boy from Stampotique which didn't quite work on the different layers of paper. I journalled using three sakura gel pens. The colours are inspired by a competition on UK Stampers which were lying on my desk as I experimented with different ideas.
