Art Journal: Creative Freedom

IMG_5419 art journal robenmarie style

Taking inspiration from an artist whom I admire, Roben- Marie Smith, in a recent class I enjoyed with her as teacher, I created this page, with tons and tons of layers, many of them not even visible in the final product. I started with a couple of spray inks through stencils, followed by a couple of applications of acrylic paint on a Gelli Plate. I also enjoyed my first attempt at an image transfer (an old dictionary page). Further layers include, but are not limited to, collage elements, stamps (love Roben Marie’s alphabet stamp), acrylic paints. I especially love my new Molotow pens (white and black). And, thanks to a “virtual” friend, I was able to add a “real” Australia postage stamp! It was a really fun page.

Linking to Simon Says Stamp and Show Kraft Challenge (my kraft piece is in the center—a torn piece of kraft parchment paper).
