Journal Page by Debs Wainwright

Hello everyone Debs here with my project for this week, which is a journal page.


I took a page that was a bit of a mop up page. You can see where I turned a word stencil over as the words are in reverse.

I then I built up the background using Media Mists and Media Fluids through stencils as well as a background stamp. I did think of leaving it as it was but I got a nagging thought that it needed a girl to complete the page.


So I started to add my girl building her in layers using Media fluids.

For the skin colour I mixed Burnt Umber, Titanium White and Cadium Red this was then blended with extender to help me blend the colours. Once these layers were dry, using a sanding block I smoothed the face and removed part of the colour around the neck and shoulders. I really loved how this looked.
I then built up the face and hair. You can see where I have a smudged the pen I used for detail.  

Next I finished her hair and added my journaling.


What I used 


DecoArt Products
Andy Skinner Stencils: Baroque, Vogue,

Fude Ball Pen 
Sanding Block from personal stash

Take care and I’ll see you next week
