Art Journal: Reflections—All My Needs

I needed a break from class assignments, so I made this journal layout using some new products, along with stamps, Molotow markers, acrylic ink, and gauze (stained with spray ink).

It’s difficult to get a shot that shows shine. In this case, my motivation for doing this page was to use a couple of new products. I used a stencil with Silks Acrylic Glaze (Key Lime) as a resist, with Inka Gold Cobalt Blue painted all over the background. The angle in the photograph below shows the shine a little better, but not at all like “real life.”

What’s funny about the following picture is that the dove was NOT painted with the Silks Key Lime. It was cut from a page of scrapbook paper and then stamped! But the doily stencil is Key Lime, and the blue background is Inka Gold Cobalt Blue.
