My art journal page today did not turn out the way I saw it in my mind’s eye. At all. But, all in all, I’m ok with it.
I started out by using gelatos in black, purple, dark blue, and light blue, and then doing a wash over them. It turned out badly. So, I covered the whole thing in some cheap white tissue paper, and then used watered-down gesso to knock back the gelatos even more.
Using blue, purple, and silver ink, I used mandala stamps to stamp the upper edge and also used some embossing ink and Lindy’s black embossing powder on a couple of the mandalas/snowflakes.
I sprayed Lindy’s pewter spray on both pages and stamped the quote.
Finally, I used a brad to attach a Tim Holtz disc that reads “Truth” to the edge of the page.
Throw me to the wolves and I will return leading the pack. Truth.
