The Whole World's Joy by Alison Hall


I've been playing with Gelatos in my art journal again, & I created a bright and colourful page to share with you.


Here's what I used... 

Faber-Castell Gelatos - Pistachio, Cotton Candy, Mango & Bubble Gum
Matt Medium 
Old Music Sheet


This is what I did...


1. On watercolor cardstock, I scribbled the Gelatos randomly, then blended them with my finger.

2. I placed the Stencil Girl stencil over the top, then used a baby wipe to wipe out the colour. I trimmed off 3 thin strips of my background, to use as the flower stems, cut them to size, & inked the edges with black Archival. 

3. Next, I used Jet Black Archival ink to stamp the flourish from HP1007 around my page, then inked the edges with black.

4. I glued the 'flower stems' to my page, then roughly tore 3 circles from old music sheet, & glued them in place. I used journaling pens to add some doodling to the flowers & stems.

5. I inked up one of the dotty circles from EEV06 with black Archival, & stamped the flower centres.

6. Finally, I stamped the phrase from HP1007 on card, cut it out, inked the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink, then glued it in place on my page.
Thanks for dropping by,
