GD: Ellen Vargo #2 Art Journal Video {Part 2}

Hello again! Ellen Vargo here again to share part 2 of my art journal video series.  Thanks for all the lovely comments on yesterday's background video. 

Today we'll be doing some collage work using stamps and map paper.  Here's another sneak of where we are heading by the end of tomorrow, but for today you will need some black archival ink, a few of my stamps, and perhaps an old map book.

Tonight you will learn a great way to use up those brayering painted leftovers!

And how to randomly add them to last nights BG for another level of interest.

Then we explore how adding some collaged atlas-scraps can change the whole composition yet again.

Are you ready? Let's get started!

Tomorrow we'll finish up the page with some lettering and paint pen embellishments... hope you'll come back and check it out,  See you tomorrow!

Leandra Says: Well, I think we have a new video star here! It's fascinating to see you in action, and so nice to see how you bring it all together. Impatient to see tomorrow's now!

Gillian Says: Ohhh Ellen, I really love how those pods pop when you add them to yesterday's background, great toi see how you can use up those painted paper scraps!

If you would like to join in this week's challenge and play along with Ellen's techniques, then do link up your creativity here, and go in the draw to win some PA stamps of your choice! You need to link your entry by 17:00 (London time), Sunday March 23rd 2014.

I can't believe that you haven't made any videos before Ellen, you're a natural. The background is beautiful, can't wait for the next instalment.
