Thanks for all your nice comments about my before & after art journaling page. Since many of you told me that you like to see the evolution of my pages I thought I'd share a couple more "before" shots of pages that are in progress.
I love using Gelatos on mixed media projects. They are so creamy and fun to use! Most of the color on the page above (except the purple, which is Color Wash) was done with Gelatos. The butterfly was done with stamping the image with a Big Brush Pen, drying it, and then coloring it in with Big Brush Pens and applying a bit of Gelatos over the top. And of course I doodled over it a bit too so it would be more "sketchy".
I don't remember where she came from...some magazine if I remember correctly. She was just a black and white image that I cut out and added to my stash. I adhered her to the page and then used some PITT pens to color her in...her skin was done with Gelatos.
I'll be back from the 2012 CHA Trade Show tomorrow so stay tuned for my re-cap of the great new arts and crafts products that will be headed to market this year!
