Wanderlust Journal Page

Last week's Wanderlust was all about texture and the journal prompt was 'What I am most grateful for'. Here are my pages.

Wanderlust

The Wanderlust project last week was to paint an abstract landscape using a textured background. This is the photo I started with; a picture of Corfe Castle.


First I added some collage to my canvas and, having sketched on my picture, then added modelling paste to give texture. Then came layers of inks, paints and water-soluble oil pastels. 

The idea was not to end up with an exact copy, but rather a representation of the picture. Here is my finished picture.

Using Brushos -2

Another card, very different to the last, using Brushos and Carabelle stamps. Apologies for the shine, the card is pearlised.

I made this card with Brushos and a Carabelle stamp, all ready for an appropriate sentiment to be attached.

Colour, Layers and Patterns

This week, Birgit Koopsen was the guest artist at Wanderlust. Her journal page was all about colour, layers, patterns and details.

My background has lots of layers of paint, stencilling and stamps.


I then added the image and stamped on some flowers. I then painted around the image and flowers and added further detail to the flowers and background. It was hard covering so much of the background, but I like the end result!
