If you want to join in with making an Attitude of Gratitude Journal through the month of November click through to the Challenge blog.
Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Thanksgiving.
Today's art challenge was to 'find a way to add texture to your page today'.
I spread a narrow strip of gesso down the left hand side of the page and pressed a rubber stamp into the gesso and left the gesso to dry. Remember to clean your stamp straightaway.
I wiped some turquoise and some green acrylic paint onto the whole page.
Then I stamped the leaves with gesso instead of ink.
When the gesso had dried I sprayed with pink ink and restamped the leaf stamps with black Archival ink.
I also stamped some leaves off the edge of the page. I stuck the verse on and did the journaling.
Another page to come back to I think. I might possibly highlight the flower pattern on the left hand side with black pen. Not sure though! What do you think?
See you tomorrow.
