Georgie here, and today I'm sharing with you a page from my Heart Journal.
Journal pages are just the most wonderful thing to do because you just let the creative juice flow and run with it, not worrying so much about the outcome. I adore hearts and have now dedicated a little art journal book to hearts and artwork. So every page I make has to include a heart somewhere lol!
A frenzy of Finn products were used, but one of the most important things is getting you base right. Slapping on some gesso and modelling paste allows the paint to move and run rather than being absorbed straight into the paper.
Next I added some texture sand. I did two layers. the first being a light coat stretching it down the page with a palette knife, and the second, I created the heart shape.
Once dry, and this takes overnight because of its thickness, I gave the heart a coat with black gesso. Then came the shimmery magical goodness from the Art Ingredients Mica Powder. I used Gold and Teal, sprinkling on the page dry and then spritzing with water to let the colours 'play', however still keeping the movement vertical.
Archival Inks teamed with 'Messy' stamp achieved some extra interest to the background and some horizontal movement.
Have a lovely day my friends, and please see below my list of 'ingredients'...
