be a rainbow sprinkle in a vanilla world
Tonight’s page is very bright. It’s actually a rework of a previously grey page. It was only grey and was a little depressing. Instead of doing a new page, I decided to rework this one.
I used a 3 different of different colours to lay down the base then started with stencils on top of it. I decided to add more colours with a brayer. I wiped it off in a few places as it was a lot of the one colour. I then added more layers with black and white, using found objects like bubble wrap and a tube. (It’s a lot of fun figuring out what can make good patterns in paint!)
I got stuck at this point and couldn’t figure out where I wanted to go next with this page so I stated flipping through my older journals. It’s definitely inspiring to see where I’ve been and how far I’ve come since starting this project.
I decided to place a quote as the focal and, given how bright an colourful this page was, I felt the rainbow sprinkle one was appropriate. I wrote it up on a piece of paper and cut it out. I adhered it in the journal with golden matte medium.
I made a giant mess tonight but enjoyed reminiscing, looking through the older pages. Worth it.
