I broke out my new art journal (fun!) and created a page that morphed a few times in the process eventually evolving into one about my dad. There are so many times that I wish he was around so I could ask him something or glean some words of wisdom from him. He is there. I just need to listen to that inner voice.
This is my first attempt at what I think of as an "art journaly" page. To me that means an interesting background - at least that's what I'm drawn to when looking at other's art journal pages.
I used Distress Inks - Walnut Ink, Broken China, Dusty Concord, Fired Brick and Pumice Stone. I brushed it on, rubbed it on, stamped with it and dribbled water over it. Some dots of Picket Fence Stain are on there too.
Jasmine has been my go-to girl lately. She is colored with Copics. A couple of strips of washi tape and some little stars using my white Signo Uniball pen (accented with bits of Diamond Stickles) finished it up.
I've decided I like getting nice white pages kinda dirty...
