Hand Holding An Orb & Process Video with Selena Stevens

Today I am going to show you an art journal page using StencilGirl stencils and Colour Artist Ink.

To see the process video go here.

So, lets begin …


I started by randomly stamping over the page with a permanent ink.  It needs to be permanent since there are  more layers to go on top of it and I don’t want it smudging black everywhere.


I ripped some music paper and glued it down to form a loose interpretation of trees.  Black and White Heavy Gesso was used to add tonal values to the shadows of the “tree trunks”.


I wet the page with water. While wet I added Colour Artist Ink (Citrus, Cranberry & Cider) one at a time with a paint brush and blended the edges together.

A little of the White Heavy Gesso was added to the middle of the centre of the circle to make it lighter.


I wanted some Colour Paste that was lighter than the Sunshine so I mixed the Sunshine Colour Paste with the White Heavy Gesso for a pale yellow colour.


This pale yellow colour was scraped through a StencilGirl stencil with a palette knife randomly over the page.


That brings us to the end of the art journal page.  


I hope you enjoyed it.


I would love to see you recreate this page.

Until next time

Selena
