Art journal spead: Just because


With Banksy now popping up on tv, in newspapers and on social media I had to take out my Banksy stamps and to create a new spread in my small Moleskine book:

I started with stencilling and inking the page background. I splashed water on the Distress ink, dried the page with my heat gun, and stamped patterns on top. For the pink crosses I used acrylic paint, and for the small numbers a black dye ink.

The main image is heat embossed and painted with watercolors. Heat embossing works very well with watercolors, as the melted powder resists the colors, leaving the black color true black.

I think the background texture looks quite nice. It matches well to the brick wall patterns on the woman's face.

Here's a list of the VLVS! stamps I used for this spread:

Banksy Wall Singer
Banksy Just Because
Rows of Numbers
Carved Xs

Hope my page inspires you to get creative and to take out your own art journal :)

Wishing you a wonderful day!
