Out of the Journal Week Three
Here's my canvas for this week. I couldn't find a suitable canvas, so I dug through my
'stuff' and found this smallish 6 x 6 unprimed canvas that I had inked with some distress inks and misted with water. And then promptly forgot. About five years ago. Erm...
It was all a bit of a rust color. Wasn't sure what to do next so I cut a vintage photo that I had been eyeying up off of a journal and plopped in down with some gel medium ...I didn't like the page but I love the photo. Tada! Much better. It's a beach scene, so I needed some turquoise, right? or something...... so I stenciled with my favorite stencil (that has also been used on the last two canvases, although you can't really tell) and some sequin waste, and kind of just fooled with over -stenciling with different colors until I liked it. Fun! I really feel it needs some text ...maybe a quote? but I'm leaving it breathe for now. Thank you for tuning in....make sure you check out everybody's work over at Dina's blog.
