Good morning folks, my project today is an art journal page for our Anything Goes challenge over at Polkadoodles. As always we've got lots of inspiration from my teamies and a fabulous prize from Polkadoodles lined up for our lucky winner so pop over to the challenge blog to find out all the details.
I've used this adorable image from Polkadoodles for my journal page. She's called Winnie Wednesday Witch with Cat, you can get her as a digital stamp here or you can treat yourself to the full Winnie Wednesday Halloween Collection (full of gorgeous images, papers and sentiments) here.
I began by creating my background. I splashed on some masking fluid to create create some stars and once that was dry I misted the page with water. Next I sloshed on metallic acrylic paints in shades of blue, pink, green and purple adding lots of water to help them blend. I added dark blue acrylic and then black around the edges and left it all to dry.
While the background was drying I coloured Winnie using Graph'It markers:
I cut Winnie out leaving a little ground at the bottom of the image and went back to the background. Once it was thoroughly dry I rubbed off the masking fluid to create some nice bright stars, next Isplashed diluted white gesso on the background to create some stars. I added more stars with a white posca pen. I used matte medium to collage Winnie on to the background.
