Sometimes it is necessary to cover up good stuff when art journaling. In creating layers, I will often cover up elements that I really like. I don't worry about "ruining" my page or not liking the end result. The freedom I give myself to cover up things makes the process more enjoyable and more often than not I end up more pleased with the results. Give yourself permission this week to cover up some good stuff and see what happens!
Have ablessed day!
Layers You Will Love!
Art Challenge: Covering up good stuff
Journal Prompt: Going undercover
My first layer is an inky piece of newsprint that I glued to my page. I used the Stones Divided stencil with molding paste to create the half circle shapes. I outlined them with a black stabilo pencil and added water with a water brush to spread the color. I also painted an oval shape with watered down black gesso.
To finish my page, I stitched a tag and other elements to an inky piece of paper, added a circle sticker, stamped a feather from Rae Missigman's Natural Elements rubber stamp set to book paper, trimmed and stitched to the top. I stitched a scrap piece of paper and glued it to the top of the black painted oval.
