Tonight I'm going to a meet-up with a bunch of artsy types whom I've never met. The theme of the meet-up is art journals. I have no idea what to expect or what to bring but I decided that I'd better get some action started in mine so if I'm put on the spot I have something to show. Yikes, that's a scary thought to show people in person.
Dylusions inks, oh, how I love thee. First I gessoed (can 'gesso' turn into a verb? Let's say yes) my pages. To keep it off the other pages I've been using an old phone book. I started to reach for some book pages but changed my mind and tore some strips out of the phone book and glued those bad boys on there. Next I squirted on a little Bubblegum and Sunshine inks. Check out how the phone book strips gobbled up the ink - love it.
Wendy Vecchi has come up with some embossing pastes (would love to get my hands on the black!) and that reminded me that I've had some stashed away for years. I spritzed a little Sunshine ink into the paste and swiped over a brass template in a few spots.
Not sure what I'm going to do next - probaby some stamping and flicking of paint. What would YOU do next?
