Paint + mists + gesso = hope for the best.... *winks*


Blend-in...

This was one of those art journal pages where I really "threw" paint + mists + gesso = hope for the best. *winks*


I started by spreading paint with an old credit card. When that dried, I went in with a stencil and mists. Next, I added a layer of super heavy gesso with another stencil for texture, The round white spots were added when I decided to clean my gesso-covered fingers on my pages. *LOL*


Of course, after all the paint-throwing, my journal pages were lacking a focal point. Given my recent obsession with faces, you know I just had to add one in right? I boldly went in with a black acrylic paint marker and then added highlights with a white acrylic paint marker.


I love that she blends in with the background and her features still stand out. What do you think?
