I'm loving this mixed media stuff. Thank Aussie Annie and Lizzy Love for inspiring me to give it a go :)
This is my third Art Journal page. Onto the blank page I've used some modelling paste and three stencils over the top of a face image I sketched to add some texture. Fortunately I took this picture because after that I got carried away and forgot to take any more pictures - LOL!
I've only used some acrylic paints, black polychromos pencil and a black artist pen to create this with. Some of the acrylic has been diluted and one colour allowed to run down the page. The speckled mushy effect in the green to the left of the leaves (mushy is probably not an art type word at all - LOL) has been done with a dry sponge.
Once I'd got all the colour on I used the black polychromos pencil to add some extra shading to the hair and black artists pen to ink up the black patches on the modelling paste and some of the words.
And here's a close up of the coloured image I'd sketched
Thanks for dropping by and taking a look
