I'm sharing my page for this month's theme of 'Out and About' at ART JOURNAL JOURNEY today, which reflects how I enjoy going out with my sketchbook and paints. However, I don't take the opportunity to do this as often as I'd like so maybe now I'll make more time.
I started by using a piece of corrugated card to create lines across the page with chalk paint in teal and antique white. Then I stencilled the word 'Love' using white texture paste.
When this was dry I used Tim Holtz Circus Alphabet and Distress Ink Black Soot to stamp 'To Paint'. The rest of the text was painted free-hand using chalk paint. When everything was dry I painted some of the text with watercolour paint.
The focal image was a little note sent with one of my ATC swaps (thanks to Janice for that), stamped using a free magazine stamp and DI Black Soot.
