My name is Susanne and today it's the first time for me to give you some inspiration with the
awesome Viva Las Vegastamps. It's such a honor for me to be part of this
talented design team. Today, I'd like to share an art journal page.
Here are the step by step instructions:
Step 1: I started with a gelli printed background, added some Gesso with a scraper and some Neocolor II watercolor pastels.
Step 2: I blended the Neocolors with some water and a brush and added color until I was happy.
Step 3: I removed some of the Neocolor with a wet baby wipe by using a stencil. The result is a nice texture.
Step 4: Before stamping the main image I covered the area, where it would be placed, with gesso.
5: I stamped the main image, the Dancing Lady and the You Are Here
sentiment with Jet Black Archival Ink. I also used the Waybill/Invoice
Background to add some interest to the background.
6: Now it was time to drew the mason jar arround the Dancing Lady. I
sketched it first and traced the lines with a black uniPOSCA marker. I
colored the Dancing Lady as well as the jar with the Neocolors II.
7: I adhered the Until Further Notice (stamped
on white paper) to my page. I colored it also with Neocolor II. Now I
took the black and white uniPOSCA marker to add some doodling and to
highlight the You Are Here. Finally I added some interest with the Dictionary Page stamp and the Toy Airplane stamp (in the right upper corner). The black paint
splatters give the page it's final touch.
Here are some more detailed images:
