art journal page – it’s like movie love (journal52)


I’m going out of order!!  I started Week 6 and 7 of Journal52 at the same time and it turned out that Week 7 dried faster and was ultimately finished first.  Week 7’s prompt was “Valentines” and this was my effort.  This was completed in my Moleskine watercolour book beginning with a layer of gesso and adding red metallic mixed with white craft paints for the painted background.

valentine4Next I added some stamping with a script background stamp in red ink, the white hearts using a stencil and the film strip stamps in black.

valentine5I cut out the hearts from book pages and glued them down using Golden Soft Gel (Matte) medium.  I doodled around them and stapled on the film strip ribbon along the edge.

valentine7The final touches were adding the sentiment (a quote from “Friends”) and random doodles.  I also put some white dimensional drops at the bottom of each heart for a little added ‘something’.
