I have just recently become the proud owner of Dina Wakley's new book 'Art Journal Freedom'.
The book is about colour and composition and in my opinion it is 'fantastic'!! I was in great need of some advise on this subject and I have been unable to put it down.
I have done two pieces using what I have learned from this book . The first was my version of an excercise from the book.
The silhouette was an image cut out of a magazine and the letters and numbers on the left were created with a stencil and gel meduim which acts as a resist when thin acrylic paint is applied. Fans of Dina's style will notice that I have left out the hand written journalling. This is because I was so pleased with the result that I was scared of spoiling it . I need more practice in that department before I feel confident enough to apply it to the finished piece.
I think this is my favourite page out of all the pages I have done since I started Art Journaling (Although this isn't in a journal. It is just on a piece of paper).
I used Brusho Spray, acrylic paint and the image was a free downloadable image I found on Tim Holtz's website.
I coloured her dress and her bow in green Sharpie pen and gave her little pink cheeks using Pan Pastel.
Thank you for visiting and bye for now x.
