Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine

Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with my very first Art Journal page, forgive me if it's a bit messy but I was having fun and didn't really know where to stop.

I first used crackle paste with one of the Magenta mandala stencils then texture paste with the old lace. Once all the stencilling was dry I gesso'd the whole page.

I sprayed the page with nuance sprays and let everything dry.  I stencilled the birds on the branch with texture paste and painted with Fine Tec watercolours. I used some printed tissue paper and coloured the back before sticking it with matte medium. I then added some random stamping to bring the areas together.


Salut tout le monde, c'est Christine ici avec ma toute première page de journal d'art, pardonnez-moi si c'est un peu brouillon mais je m'amusais et ne savais pas vraiment où m'arrêter. J'ai d'abord utilisé de la pâte à craqueler avec l'un des pochoirs de mandala de Magenta puis de la pâte de texture avec la vieille dentelle. Une fois que tout le pochoir était sec, j'ai mis du gesso sur toute la page. J'ai vaporisé la page avec différentes couleurs et laissé le tout sécher. J'ai utilisé le pochoir d'oiseaux sur la branche avec de la pâte de texture et peint à l'aquarelle Fine Tec. J'ai utilisé du papier de soie imprimé et coloré le dos avant de le coller avec un support mat. J'ai ensuite ajouté des étampes d'une manière aléatoire pour rapprocher les zones.



Here are some close ups of the page.

Quelques détails.

What a wonderful blend of elements and techniques! Especially love the birds in the top left and the botanical stamping at the bottom right. Great slightly muted colours too!

I think a bit of messiness and a lot of fun is exactly the point of art journalling. Your page is really beautiful - such lovely spring colours and that crackled mandala is wonderful.
