Hot'n Crazy Art Journal - some inspiration for Mixed Media Art

In my last post - as you can see by clicing here, I did promise you to come up with some madness, and here it is:


Another dobble page in my Art Journal. This time I use warm colours just to get some summer feeling. We have not had any summer yet, in my opinion, where I live in Norway, then I found out that I paint the summer feeling instead :-)

I think of summer as warm red, orange, turquise and yellow so i've used these colours - unless the yellow, for the background. Then I stamp different flowers all over the page, and stamp a Board around the page. Then I took some gesso on my finger and rub it in here and there on the page, just to get the colors to blend nicely together.

I took a lot of different stencils and make some very nice pattern and depth to my page using exactly the same colors that I used for the background, and I also used yellow. Then I used some rubber stamps both from Dylusions and from Rubber Dance to make some more pathern and life to the page using black and white ink. I cut out the big bird, lady's face and body from Magazines and the rest of the images I stamped, cut out and colored them with Distress Ink and Promarker Pens. Then I glued all Down to the page. The small flowers I find in my stuff, glue them down and slew them with a small dot of Liqued Pearls on each petals.  Around the edge I used my white pen here and there.

Here is some close ups for you:
