Embrace beautiful chaos – process

Tonight’s page is bright but tempered by the black and white. 
 Tonight I started this journal page with a collage of differently textured Japanese papers I bought from an art store in Toronto (Curry’s) and some strips of brown kraft paper. I used my Golden matte medium to glue the papers down to my page. I coated the papers with Golden gesso to cover the colours up.  

 After I dried the gesso, I started dripping Golden high flow acrylics from the top of the page. I used hansa yellow and fluorescent pink. Some of the drips combined to make a really pretty fluorescent orange.  I also used Liquitex professional ink in quinacridone magenta to add a darker pink to the page.

 I added the different colours, drying between layers.  

 I then swiped on some more gesso and used my catalyst tool to add a crosshatch texture. After drying, I sprayed on some Dylusions black marble ink spray to really make the texture pop.  

 The final step was to add the quote; a Tim Holtz idea-ology small talk quote.
