Sharing a large journal page creation today using a fun image from the store "Goth Girl with Striped Leggings" - just love this image - so great to colour and create this page with!
You can find her in one of 2 places - at the Etsy Store
or Sal's New Website
along with all the other amazing images, clipart and even fun workshops!
To create my page background I added strips of old book pages randomly over the page -my page was already pink from using up some paint from another creation!!
I then added texture paste through a 12 x 12 stencil to create the squares.
Once that was dry - or almost dry because I get impatient and just want to start on the next process - I used several colours of water soluble wax pencils to colour the squares randomly then spritzed with water and rubbed in with my finger.
I wanted the squares to have a shadowy look so I used more of the wax pastels in black and browns and drew borders around each square, spritzed again and used my trusty finger again!
To add a bit more depth I used a couple of Kaisercraft texture stamps with archival ink to add the graffiti look lettering and splodges!
Finally I fussy cut the copic coloured image and adhered to the page and added a bit of charcoal pencil and black wax pastel to the image to blend her into the page.
Finally added the "chill out" stickers and the page is done!!
Love how this turned out!!!
