Yesterday I went to an Art Journal workshop, which is SO far out of my CAS comfort zone! But sometimes it's good to go out of your comfort zone.....right? It was run by the two friends who organise my local, monthly 'Crop and Craft' days, so I knew I'd be in safe hands. :-)
For the first project, I started with a blank piece of mountboard and attached various die-cuts, textured paste and torn, embossed card before painting everything with black acrylic paint. When it was dry I added silver and turquoise Inka-Gold which gave it a metallic sheen.
The next two projects were also on mountboard, painted with blue, pink and yellow acrylic paint, before giving them a coat of white acrylic paint. The image was coloured with pencil crayons. The text was computer generated with lines added by hand.....
... although on the second one my CAS head kicked in and the lines around the text on this one were done on the computer. ;-)
So..... I survived the day. I'll remember to put my gloves on before I start next time, so I don't come home with blue stained hands again!
