Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Childhood.
Today's art challenge was to 'find a creative way to add a tag to your page'.
This is the back of a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper which is very absorbent. After I sprayed ink on it I didn't much like the result.
So I scraped some acrylic paint across it and also used the acrylic to stencil onto a black tag. I was really stuck on how to add the tag creatively. I hope you come up with some interesting ideas!
Then I had a light bulb moment as I looked at the theme. I took some scrapbooking paper and zigzag folded it. Drew my doll shape and cut it out.
And here are my 'children' holding hands.
I used gel medium to stick them down across the tag to hold the tag to the page. (I'm sure there are more creative ways to add a tag but they all escaped me as I did this!) I had also stencilled the edge with white gesso which absorbed some of the ink and then added highlights with black pen. I did my journaling on one of the paper children.
I'm really pleased with how this turned out as there were several times when I thought I should give up on it.
Have a great day. See you tomorrow.
