The first page uses Olivia, Oh Dear and Eric. I created a background using pink and orange dylusion paints and inks (on a gesso base layer) and then added extra detail with Teal. I stamped the figures onto card and coloured them using Wild Honey, Marmalade, Barn Door and Worn Lisptick distress inks and stains.
I coloured three postage tags with Dylusions white and teal paint and then sprayed poemegranate ink on top. I stamped Eric, Olivia, Angel Boy and Fran in blue Stazon across the tags. The other side of the tags is for my secret journalling. They fit inside the pocket under the flap.
The other side of the page was given a layer of gesso and then I applied teal and pink Dylusion paints with an old credit card. I stamped Smushasha and Angel Boy and coloured with Distress inks. My wish or new goal for 2012 is to continue with art journalling and I now have a book to do it in rather than random bits of paper that I had to wonkily cut to size.
I am going to create another post today which shows the completed journal which I am so pleased with.
