Artist Ink Rainbow Art Jounal Page by Julie Schinkel

 Hi everyone, today I'm sharing a bright and cheery rainbow art journal page using Colour Blast Artist Inks and a stencil and stamp set from the Arty Farty Collection by Michelle Grant. With the world the way it is at the moment, we can all use a little extra colour to brighten our days.


Swipe some Artist Inks onto a scrap piece of plastic and add a few drops of water to dilute. Smoosh onto the page. Repeat each step with every colour overlapping as you go. The order of colours used is: Citrus, Cider, Sunburnt, Cranberry, Slipper, Berry, Marine, Mermaid, Glass, Lime. I repeated the process without diluting the Artist Inks to give a little more depth and dimension to the colours.

When the page is dry, stencil the paint brushes and "Live Life in Full Colour" quote using the Beautiful Mess stencil and black archival ink as shown. 
 
Random stamp the paint brushes and "doodle" stamp from the Live Your Art stamp set and black archival ink. Stencil random paint blotches as shown. I've traced over the quote, paint brushes and stencils with a white paint pen, then scribbled over the doodles with a black pen.

To finish, outline the whole page using a black pen or ink to frame the page.

Note: I haven't used any gesso on my page as I wanted the ink to "grip" onto the paper. You can of course gesso your page first but if you're using white gesso it will dilute the intensity of the artist inks.
