This month's theme at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY is Fifty Shades of Red which made me think of Valentines' Day and hearts (I'm so predictable) so that's the theme I went with.
I got started with some watercolour paint in Permanent Rose and Alizarin Crimson and after wetting the page, allowed the paint to drip and run. I dabbed more paint here and there to intensify the colour and flicked some across the page. When this was dry I used a Tim Holtz faded dots stencil and StazOn red ink to add some texture.
Next, using a strong mix of each of the watercolour reds and a stencil, I painted the solid hearts, then I used Distress Ink in Festive Berries and Fired Brick to stamp 'Love', using a Tim Holtz Stuff to Say stamp before finally writing 'Love' using a felt pen.
