New ART Journal pages

Art Journal 002
 Well, I finally got around to playing with my two new stamp sets from JOFY.  I have wanted these from day one, finally just ordered them just because!!......LOL  I just love the sketchiness of these images.  So they were stamped with black StazOn ink, colored with Prisma pencils and OMS, then I took the Gelatos to the back ground.  I wanted the JOFY name, but didn't want to copy it, so I cut it out of the package and glued it on.

 Yesterday, between desk hopping for WOYWW, this page was created.  Yep, I got the TH gear die too!  They were cut from all kinds of cs but I went over them with Gesso, so it didn't really matter.  After the Gesso I used black, terra cotta and yellow acrylic paint......WOOOHA! way to intense, so I did a white wash over all of it.  Found a piece of cardboard, in the garage, and tore a piece off, then tore the paper off one side of it and added it to the page.  Needed a little color so a swiped it with TH Vintage Photo stamp pad.  I wanted the copper gears to be a little duller so they got inked too, and so did the bamboo skewers.  The skewers were glued in place, through the grooves of the cardboard.  The gears are raised with pop dots to hold them out and over the skewers.  (A closer view below)

The theme song from "Working 9 to 5" kept running through my head, so that is what I put at the top.  A fun inky and painty day I had.

So that's my share for today (so far)
