Mother’s Day Art Journaling

Mother’s Day 2012

My art journal spread for Mother’s Day.  The first layer was created with a torn up menu from Kenny & Zukes Delicatessen applied with Golden soft body gel medium.  I then covered that with a thin coat of gesso.  Once it was dry, I used a handmade circle stencil with punchanella underneath and sprayed Adirondack color wash through the stencils.  I used a wet paint brush to blend the colors to the rest of the pages.  When that dried I used more gesso around the circles and let the colorwash blend to eliminate the hard lines of the circles.  I added two tip-ins, both pieces of ephemera from the Sketchbook Project exhibit in Portland.  I then added the date with stamps and hand wrote the highlights of my day.  Enjoy!

Keep it Simple.
