GD: Clare Lloyd Project #2 Art Journal Page

"Hi everyone, Clare here and I am back with an art journal page. I decided to do some drawing for tonight's project so let's begin".
 


I gessoed the 4" x 4" greyboard and chose three colours to create stripy background. I used a wide flat brush so I could work with all three colours on the brush at the same time. I used Yellow Submarine, London Bus and Tango.


Then came some stamping using my new stamps ECL01 and I used Black Archival Ink.



Time to start my drawing and painting on to Smoothy Heavy weight card. I sketched using a Pigma Fineliner pen and then I started adding colour using Vintage Lace, Caramel and Chocolate Pudding. For more detail on how to do this take a look at some posts and tutorials I did on faces early in the year.



I did add a touch of simple pencil crayon onto my girl's face to add extra dimension. The hair was painted with Haystack and Caramel. Now for some embellishment and I decided to give shrink plastic a go. 


The flowers and her brooch were simply stamped onto transparent shrink plastic and then to add the colour I painted the back of the image with coordinating Fresco paints. Once dry,  I cut them out and used my heat gun to shrink them down. 


Here is my finished page again I chose this quote from ELB05 which seemed to complement my page and the art work.




I will be back tomorrow night with another festive make.I hope you give tonights project a go.
