I’ve been recently playing with using acrylic paint as water color.  This dripping technique is one of my favorites.

To create the look you just used heavily watered acrylic paint.  Paint a splotch near the top of your page and then spray with more water.  If the color isn’t strong enough, just add more paint.  Repeat with as many colors as desired.

Did this one for a challenge at Scrapbook.com.  I just love how it turned out.

IMG_2369I printed the photo in black and white and color.  Then cut out and assembled the pieces.  I just did some doodling and stamping for the hair.  The butterflies are stamped on coordinating paper and hand cut.  I just stuck down their middles so the wings would provide texture.  The papers and stickers are from  a We R Memory makers kit .

I created this art journal page for a challenge over at Scrap mixers.  The challenge was to define scrapmixing using six different patterned papers.

  • to create the back ground I sprayed three different colors of dylusions  inkspray.  then added some water to mix and blotted with a paper towel
  • then i used a stencil to spray water through to remove some of the ink
  • I built up layers of texture by spraying through three diferent stencils with the same color of spray
  • I used matte medium to adhere the patterned papers.
  • For some additional texture I added some transparent texture paste with a Tim Holtz stencil.  then layered tissue paper over it and adhered with the matte medium
  • I stamped several image on the background using archival ink.
  • The girl at the bottom is my daughters artwork printed on thin cardstock and adhered with matte medium
  • The title was create with stickers, pen and diecuts.
  • I used a prima finnabair stamp to create a border around the edges
  • For some added dimension I used a Tim Holtz stencil and Heidi Swapp gold art screen ink
