Live Every Day Journal Page Materials

I kinda loved this one. Lots of colour, lots of texture. And I love my new stencil quote from Donna Downey Studios! 

 I started this page with a leftover paint page. Lots of paint, some stenciling, not a lot of direction. The best kind of page!

 I didn’t want to cover the entire background as it was fun which worked well as I wanted bright colours. I knew the yellows and orange I chose wouldn’t completely cover the background so decided to stick to the same stencils that were already present, namely the Dylusion Large Holes and Prima Stripes & Dots. I decided to add more of these plus a new one, the Americans Pixelated. The blue that was in the background was still showing through the lighter colours so I decided to use phthalocyanine blue as the stencil layer. I also used white Golden Gesso. 

  I added the Heidi Swapp rose as the focal but wanted to make sure to leave room for the quote. I ended up taping off parts of the quote to make it fit. 

The Liquitex Light Modeling Paste used to give dimension to the quote was a bit too transparent so I painted over it with gesso. I then outlined it with my Faber-Castell Pitt Pen. 

A lot of work to this one but a lot of fun. Very relaxing.

Oh. And I also tested out a few new markers. Here is that little drawing.
