It's time to take the next step with my art journalling ;) layouts now in a bigger size notebook 8.5"×11".. Here's page #1.
I begun by two pasting two pages together to get a sturdy wotk surface.. Used Decupage napkin & modpodge to create the base of bg.
Gave a wash of gesso over it. Applied distress paint "picked raspberry" with fingers mostly & at places with wet baby wipe.. Added distress inks worn lipstick and fired brick all around the edges.
Doodled around the page with Brustro & pilot black fineliners.. Added highlights with Uniball signo white gel pen..
Did some random stamping with Kaisercraft bg texture stamp "Triangles" & Tim Holtz "little things" stamp set.. Added white splashes with watered down gesso..
I drew the girl in a scrap paper first, then carbon transferred to water color paper & colored with distress inks. Then transferred the image to papericious designer paper & paper pieced the dress, shoes and head bow.
Added wink of Stella clear glitter all over. I just love that shimmer.
Followed almost the same procedure for the umbrella & added glossy accents & black enamel accents for added dimension :)
Quote is stamped with "worn text" by Tim Holtz & memento tuxedo black ink.. Finally added the border with Kaisercraft bg stamp "Morocco".
On a personal note, I love traveling the most & felt it's apt to start my new journal based on it like my mini journal here. am happy to have incorporated my craze for doodling here :D
Hit by a wave of nostalgia as i was doing so.. Dubai is always close to my heart having so many childhood memories there :)
Here are few pics.
Thanks for your time & patience. Do lemme kno ur comments. They mean a lot to me. C u soon. Until then,
Create. Have fun.
Linking this to,
I went for "THINK PINK".
There's way too much gender discrimination here that a girl wanting to travel (that too alone) is considered close to being an alien.. Yet i choose not to give up something i love with all my heart & hoping to continue whatever comes :) i feel That is not feminisim but rather standing up for one's self rights & freedom irrespective of being male or female :)
