Happy Sunday! I got to spend some time in my studio today and got one more page done for this month as well as some of my ATCs for the #100dayproject.
I found this page in a larger journal and I have no idea what I put on the background, some kind of spray but not sure what. it also didn’t move when I added water so I wondered if I added something on top. So I added some neocolours to the background, just scribbling them on and activating them. Then I added the feather stamp in black, and then some gold acrylic to drip down the page.
The quote is of course from one of Emily Dickinson’s most famous poems, probably a bit over-quoted but still one that I like.
I also added some white paint splatters as it was looking a bit dark and needed some white to brighten it up.
A few days ago I created these metallic birdcages which I thought were perfect to add to my page with the quote and the feathers.
Here’s a closer look at some of the metallic elements shining as this page is also for Art Journal Journey’s Heavy Metal theme this month.
And that’s the finished page. Wish I could remember what I used on the background, Oxide sprays maybe? I really like the colours together.
