Art Journal: Perspective of Time by Cheetarah

Hi VLVStampers! Hope you all are having a wonderful day so far. It's Cheetarah here on the blog today and I have a little art journal spread to share with you made with lush VLVS! The focal point is a wonderful whimsical Scribble Girl designed by Tina Walker which is a new release! Check out the full plate HERE. Let me tell you how I made it and as usual, list of stamps are at the bottom of the post. 

I stared off in my pocket junk journal by adding gesso over some glued down ephemera (dictionary/book pages) and then scraping color with a used gift card until I was satisfied with the blend. I used midnight blue, fuchsia and a sea green acrylic paint for this. To add some more texture I took out my StencilGirl Stencils with some wonky geometrical shapes and lightly dabbed some paint through them. 

Next step I added more texture by stamping some yummy VLVS! texture stamps with Staz-On inks over the painted layer. The sentiment Past Present Future is also from a StencilGirl Stencil. I first used the sea green paint then traced it with a Fudeball pen. Now the base layer is done and went to work with the focal point. 

Tip if you want to use watercolors over acrylic paint layers: I bought this product a while back, watercolor ground by Daniel Smith Artists materials and really wanted to test it out as I love coloring images with watercolors. I applied a bit on the right page dried it with a heat tool to set then I stamped my focal image on it with archival ink. Then heat set it. My image was ready to be color in! Showing you some process shots of the coloring below:

The ground took the watercolors (Jane Davenport brand) very nicely and I was patient with adding the colors in layer and give it enough time to blend and dry until I was satisfied with the over all look of the the woman. Also the ground knocked down the background in brightness and to bring the pages together I stamped the previously used texture stamps over this layer. 

Stamped the word 'perspective' in the middle and splattered some rose gold paint & added a black border and called it done. 

Stamps used: 

Materials used:
Dina Wakley paints
Daniel Smith watercolor ground
StencilGirl Stencils

Hope this inspired you to take your your VLVS! and have a play with them!

Until next time! 
Have a lovely day.
