Wow, it's really quite a long time since I played with collage images. It used to be my art journal stand-by, something I always did. I guess we all move on and try new things, but it's great fun to re-visit old favourites.
Spider web stencil by Dutch Doobadoo
In my teensy-weensy mini moleskine sketchbook, I painted a background using broad and messy brush strokes, and then sponged paint through the Dutch Doobadoo spider web stencil in random areas to create interest and texture in the background. I haven't worked in this small journal for a while either, and I had also forgotten how fun and quick it is to journal on this miniature scale!
While I was on I decided to create another page at the same time ...... My paints are packed ready for a weekend of art journaling at The Artistic Stamper this coming weekend so I was on limited supplies and colours.
A few more touches of paint .... although you can still see the spider web ....
And then I added a combination of images by Tumblefish Studio and Crowabout Studio B (at Deviant Scrap). Again these image designers are my faves, and I love to play about with them and create unusual combinations.
