Challenge #10 Spray It! Ink It! Paint It! Smear It! Emboss It!Show us your inner mixed media diva! Use spray mists, inks, paints, modeling paste, embossing powder, pastels, chalk, and whatever messy media you can find! Let's dig into that hoard, pull out some of that "messy stuff," and use it up! There is a mess-maker hiding in all of you! Let her/him out to play!
I'm not sure how messy I got...messy stuff is my usual for art journalling, but I pulled out gesso, Dylusions Spray Inks, Pebeo Expandable Paint, acrylic paint, permanent pens in black and white and some Kroma Crackle.
I had a little collection of some circles and a piece of a non-slip mat which I cut into a couple of diamonds and a rectangle. These became masks which I sprayed the Dylusions inks through.
Using Terri Stegmiller's Tall Birds stencil, I traced one of the birds on to each of the circles, flipping the stencil as required to get the orientation I wanted. I did a bit of journalling within the shape of the bird before using translucent acrylic paint to paint over what I had written. The paint allows the text to still show through.
Using a fine paintbrush, I added some paint to the legs of the birds. And because I still had paint on my palette, I doodled some random circles down the left side of the page with the brush.
Black and white pen doodles were added, particularly those the circles. I also drew in some larger words and added white highlights to those.
Using the expandable paint, I added some drops here and there, letting the wet paint activate the ink under it, before using a heat gun to activate it and let it 'puff' up.
Once the crackle was completely dried I added a bit of a metallic paint rub (using my finger) over each bird.
