Art Journal Page Today

I have been inspired very much this year by Milliande and have enjoyed watching her videos on prompts she has devised.

I am not up to date with the prompts and this isn't one of them either haha but I loved the way she uses different media on her pages. So watching her use ink and gesso together I did the same and created this page.The background was Distress Inked and then smugged with a wipe and then the image (from my trusty old copy of Elle Magazine - still going strong :) )stuck onto the page. I used Dylusions purple paint for the dots and wavy lines. The border is where the Distress Ink Stormy Skies and gesso came in mixing them together on an acrylic block and painting them on with a paint brush. Then some doodling with a Pitt pen. Stamping with ink and gesso then completed the page.

Thanks for stopping by and please let me know what you think of it - I can take criticism :)

I'm blown away by this - love all the combination of technique (wish I was confident enough to try this sort of thing - I've got all the materials, but still hesitate ...) x

I love it Tracey, such a fab composition. xx
Milliande has her own channel on youtube with the previous couple of years of inspiration. Well worth a look.
