You have a choice for our new challenge for the next two weeks over at Try it on Tuesday White Space or Colourful Grunge.
So you can leave a lot of white space or go colourful and grungy or maybe include both like me (grin!).
I created this art journal page using a couple of Carabelle Studio flower masks and some different techniques using Distress Inks; for one flower I used Cracked Pistachio and Fossilised Amber ink and for the other I used Festive Berries and Peacock Feathers ink. Firstly I applied a layer of watered down Distress Ink by painting it through the masks which was a new technique for me; I did this by stamping the ink pad onto an acrylic block and picking up the ink with a wet paintbrush. Then to intensify the colours I also applied the Distress Inks using a blending tool and then I splattered the inks onto the page too. I stamped a Script Stamp by Kaisercraft using black Archival Ink and added some black flower stickers. The wording “Sometimes all you need is a splash of colour” is a sticker from Kaisercraft and was outlined with a black Uni Pin marker. To finish, I splattered the page with black DecoArt acrylic paint.
For more inspiration, be sure to check out the white space and colourful grunge creations from my Design Teamies at Try it on Tuesday too!
