2020 #8 Popping Pink: You are Unique with JOFY {by Lynn Good}

2020 Topic 8: Popping Pink

I've seen a few people using the reductive painting technique recently, and it's wonderfully effective and simple. Lynn has embellished the white further with gorgeous almost neon splatters of pink to create a piece as unique as the sentiment suggests.

Hi everyone, it's Lynn Good (Memories on the Page) with you today, and I'd like to share with you an art journal page that I have created for this challenge - Popping Pink!

I absolutely love bright colours and pinks and purples are to me like chocolate is to others!! Combine this with JOFY stamps and we have the perfect combination.  I had planned on using another stamp set and technique but with the corona virus affecting our mail system and being in Australia they didn't arrive in time so I have used this wonderful stamp set JOFY90 and a technique that I love and learned - after attending a Tracy Scott class here in Australia.

I find this technique is very rewarding - you start by painting the whole page putting colour where ever you want on the page - and by the end of it you think " oh no this is not good!"  Then you stamp directly onto the page and using Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Chalk Paint - Snowflake, white out the areas around the stamps - it is like watching a creation bloom!  Unfortunately the first photos I took did not save to my phone so I can only tell you that I painted the entire background of the art journal page in a myriad of colours, and then stamped the JOFY90 stamp around the page in black ink.

This is the stage that I would call "blooming".  You can see where you are going but know all the small details you are about to add are going to make it shine!

Here I have added some background stamping using JOFY89 stamp as well as stamping the centre piece of the flowers on Paper Artsy Smoothy Cardstock that I had painted with Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Chalk Paint - Bubblegum.

I have used the phrase from the JOFY72 stamp on the same paper that I had prepared for the centre of the flowers. Final touches include colouring some of the finer details on the flowers with paint pens and colouring the black of the flowers as I wanted them to stand out more.

I would definitely say to have a go this technique, it is so addictive once you start!!  

I cant wait to see what you create :)
