Extra Separate Art Piece
I enjoyed creating graffiti so I decided to create a simple piece with Ruth’s Blog name. It isn’t in the journal as its a separate piece that she can frame and hang somewhere if she wants. It was created using Sharpie Brush Pens and Sakura Micron Pens.
Decided to do a printout of the prompts to place at the beginning of the journal. I used the image of a background I had created for something else to be the background for the prompts.
I decided I would wrap the journal and the art piece but instead of using store bought wrapping paper I decided to create my own using acrylic paint and thin kraft paper.
To create the back cover I used chipboard since its thicker then cardstock. I covered it in wrinkled tissue paper for texture using gel matte medium and painted it using latex and acrylic paint. I used label paper and rice paper to create some of the pieces. I also used masking tape, labels, stickersm acrylic paint pen and Sharpie Brush Pens.
I had a hard time finding a rock but eventually I found one. I actually used two rocks. Basically my pet rock has a pet rock. I gessoed both rocks and painted them using acrylic paint and Faber-Castell Brush Pens. For one of the rocks I used gears, pebbles, tubes and a few other items. I also created a little back story for my pet rocks which I included in the journal.
