I wish I took pictures of my process in making this page. It didn't start out as this at all. I kept experimenting and not liking how it was turning out. There is tons of paper and paint on this page. I will show you a couple of close ups so you can see some of the paint coming through. I added modeling paste to the page and then covered the whole thing in Gesso. Once it dried I had a clean slate and I knew exactly what I was going to do.
The photo of the dandelion was one I took and won second place for a competition for a camera club. Once a month I go through all my photographs and print them on one sheet of photo paper then I store them in my art room to use for projects.
Here is a close of the page. You can see the other paint colors coming through and the texture of the modeling paste.
As I said before I wish I took pictures of the process but when I start a page in my art journal I lose all sense of reality and then it's finished. This page took me almost 3 hours!
I'm linking this to Julie's Art Journal Every Day. You should go over and take a look at Julie's pages plus every one's who linked up!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
