Dianna chose a very challenging word for this weeks art journaling page:
O Boy- I am not great with abstract but when I actually got down to it - it was quite easy and FUN!
I started by gluing down sky blue and lime green off cuts of paper that I had been using for another project. Then I added lime green patterned paper pieces. I then sprayed over alphabet and block stencils with purple acrylic ink in a spritz bottle. Then used a swirl stencil and used gesso instead of paint to stencil the swirls onto the page. I added the dictionary definition of ABSTRACT at the bottom of the left page.
I cut out letters from old magazines to make up the word "Abstract".
I then "sealed" the page with Artists Gel Medium.
