Explore Big Art Journal Page

I spent a lot of time on this one tonight. I’m glad, it’s been a while since I sat down and made something like this. It feels good to get it accomplished. 

I worked in my big art journal toady, the 14×17″ one. I started by layering down old book pages, ripped paper, lace, mesh, and cheesecloth. I added on top of all that ribbons and more lace. 

I dried the page then added a layer of gesso over top. I didn’t give it a complete coverage, I left the words on the book pages peeking through. I dried the page again the. Started adding colours. I used a combination of spray inks, alcohol inks, and more gesso. 

The header is a chipboard word I painted with gesso then covered in gold embossing powder. I layered it on more ribbons and lace and stuck it all down with heavy matte gel. The final bit was the glass glitter and mica flakes. 

I love how it all came together and I’m glad I took the time to work this one out tonight.
