I didn't know where to start on my ICAD for today. I ended up heading over to my Pinterest Artsy Journaling board to get some inspiration and found this yummy, summery color combo.
Then I remembered some great lessons I learned from Kate Crane's Journal Soup classes so got busy on a background and it all came together!
I tried to remember to take pics of the process. I like seeing how projects transform along the way.
Index cards as great to use as mop up pieces or for experimenting with products or techniques. When I grabbed the card for this project it had brayered-on acrylic ink and my dip pen scribbles. I brushed some acrylic paints over the top of those.
A little white paint and muted colors over the top came next...
More paint, darker shades this time, and some stamping and 'finger dots'...
But, wait! There's more! I added still more stamping, scribbles and a little black around the edges.
There she is! I stamped the sentiment and the head image on some tissue paper, flipped it over and painted on the back side of the tissue paper. Once that was dry, I used matte medium to stick them onto the card. I used tissue paper because it blends beautifully into the background.
Thanks for stopping by today. Happy creating!
