Metallic Floral Flourish Journal Page

You have probably noticed recently that I am creating a lot of art for and also mentioning a lot of different challenge sites and blogs lately, the reason for my doing that is not because I want to win anything but because Im using the challenges to give me ideas for journal pages and also to challenge myself artistically and hopefully try new things.

I have listed some of the blog challenge sites on a special page here on my blog, which you can find on the following link here: http://trishbee.wordpress.com/art-challenge-blogs/

Anyway I’ve been playing around with a new journal page today using my metallic markers and pens, over on Addicted To Stamps And More! Blog the challenge is to ‘Make Your Mark’ – in other words create art using markers and pens! I just knew I had to do this challenge as I am addicted to using my pens as you’ve probably noticed :)

As per I took some pictures of the process as I made my page so you can see how I did it.

Step 1: I started out with a page that I had painted brown with acrylic paint.

Step 2: Using black acrylic paint and stencils I painted on some designs onto the page:

Step 3: Next I placed 3 paper flowers on the page to use as masks.

Step 4: And painted over the top of them using burgundy acrylic paint

Step 5:  Then removed the flowers after Id painted them to reveal the floral petal shape.

Step 6: I painted some more burgundy on the page to create bordered areas.

Step 7: I painted black outlines round the petal shapes so that I could see them better.

Step 8: And then stencilled on some more designs

Step 9: And more stencilling, this time in white.

Step 10: Some yellow dots with acrylic paint.

Step 11: Then I swiped over the entire page using a red radiant rain ink dabber.

Then I dug out all my favourite metallic markers which I planned to use on this page which you can see below:

Another view of my page, my camera doesn’t photograph metallic very well.
