Over at Simon Says, the challenge this week is anything goes, so I am posting something I just learned from my friends Doris and Laura in my art journal class last night. We learned a LOT about Dylusions inks and different techniques to use in our art journals. This page I finished. I don't usually work in black and white, so it was fun, and since I was randomly given a guy stencil, I was inspired to write about my sons.
I rubbed distress black soot paint on the page, wiped it all over with a baby wipe and dried it. Next I used the stencil to draw the outline of the man with white pen,then a template to make the lines. Some doodling and words, then stamping words inside the stencil to get this rather 1960's(?) image.
