Hello Creatives...Sarinda here on Hump Day, again. I was delighted that Artistcellar.com asked me back to do a guest blog post. How Sweet it is.
Today I am using liquid watercolor from Dr. PH Martin's Watercolors. I love these intense inky colors. This project is vibrant and fun.
Here is what you will need:
- Artistcellar Stencils
- Watercolor paper
- Watercolor Dr. PH Martin's
- Spray bottle for water
- White Gesso
- Black Gesso
- Sponge Brushes
- Heat tool
- Paper Trimmer
- Adhesive letters
- Pitt Pens
- Scrap Paper
- Octopode Factory Stamps
- Copic Markers
- Corner Punch
Spray watercolor paper with water. Start adding the watercolor from ink dropper right onto the page. I have my watercolor pad vertical with an easel so that I get the best drips and bleeding. The next few images are the stages of adding color. Rotating the paper for the best blurring of the watercolor.
Cut out the section that you like the best for your journal.
Lay stencil over watercolor. Take the gesso and sponge brush with a bit of water brush over the page.
Do the same with the black gesso. Yet use sparingly in comparison to the white.
Cut the page into strips and corner punch each one. Then edge with sponge brush and black gesso. You can see how the black gesso picks up the texture of the watercolor paper.
Add to you journal with adhesive tape.
Write out with the letters "Art IS Not Optional" and stick them on neutral scrap paper and line with Pitt Pens. Cut out with scissors and adhere to journal page.
Color the Octopode Factory Stamp with Copic markers and fussy cut out. Adhere to the end of the word "optional".
I totally agree with Artistcellar.com slogan. For me this is how I live my life.
Thank you again for having me back on the blog.
Much love and joy to you.
