Today, you may enjoy my struggle playing with this art journal page.
It didn’t turn out as I imagined it.. Maybe you can give me some good advice?
It is my tutorial for the new monthly Katzelkraft challenge-
A COLORed WINTER…
Let these photographs speak for themselves, I’ll add a few details.
Add more stamping…. and this is where things started to be grrrrr…
the stamping was not to my satisfaction; the pre-colored paper has a structure to it.
Normally I would fussy cut the stamped image, but that is just not possible for the trees and branches. …
..and draw the branches and trees with a black acrylic marker.
Add highlights with a white one. (I use ones from Molotow).
Also add more color with the direct-to-paper technique with distress inks.
Add a ‘fence’, this is some cheap plastic ‘wire’ I bought a while ago.
Sponge a sun with a mask.
I added fussycut cats for on the fence, and also stamped some birds.
At this stage I thought – this is going into the waste bin….
…too much black, too much detail… grrrr…
I decided I was to cut off part of it……|
and I added some fussy cut branches…
and now I am not really satisfied with it, it will have to do..
Any tips for me?
Maybe I could’ve added some snow falling down…
See you next time!
