This week I was inspired by Art Journal Journey's theme of Frida Kahlo. I made a couple of pages to celebrate the life of this talented woman.
Her faces are Postmodern Design rubber stamps from my stash.
I used a lot of layering to make the background on this upper page. Layers included paints, scraps off my table, a dried out baby wipe, a Gelli printed deli wrap sheet, doodling, embossing powder...practically anything I could get my hands on.
And page 2-
A little more feminine and light. The background on this page is made from gluing down a paper towel. Not just a clean white paper towel, but the one I rolled over many wet inked pages to sop up the extra ink. Once it dried it made a very colorful and slightly textured background. I also did some background stamping right on the paper towel.
This is a snapshot I took before I finished the page but you can see the quote a little better here.
It has been a great studio week for me. Lots of fun time playing, planning and thinking about art. What more could a bioartgal want on the last week of her summer vacation?
Thanks for visiting.
