Hello, my friends. Can you believe it's May already? A new month brings new challenges. So today I made an art journal spread for a challenge at OWSE Yahoo group, which was to use a dance theme.
I started with a couple of pages which had been gessoed and then sprayed with color wash sprays over a stencil. I think there was also some glazing medium brushed over the color wash. But I wanted a more subtle background, so I added some more gesso over the pages. Some of the ink colors blended with the gesso, giving a completely different look.
The dancers are computer generated clip art, which I printed and then cut out. I die cut the umbrella man, which is a Tim Holtz/Sizzix die, from black card stock.
The quote is also computer generated, with the edges highlighted with black marker.
I used my tear drop circle dies from Spellbinders to die cut ballet blue card stock, so I had a lot of rain drops. After gluing them down, I added some which gel pen highlights. I also used white gel pen to add paths for the raindrops.
To finish off the page, I added some faux stitching to give some movement to the dancers.
Thanks so much for stopping Have a great weekend.
