Week 40 of Jurnal 52

 
"For this week’s prompt, experiment with a new technique you haven’t tried yet. It can be something you’ve found on Pinterest or watched on YouTube or just trying a new medium you haven’t worked with yet." say the head master of Journal 52.
 
If you have been here before (my blog) you know that I am always trying something I've seen here or there (usually You Tube and Pinterest since these seem to be my favorite haunts).  So there really isn't much, if anything I haven't tried, except playing with the wax media.....which I am not interested in at all.  That left me with what?????  I decided to work with alcohol inks on WET Gesso, to start with....grin. I used a brayer and mushed it all in, added more alcohol and used an acrylic roller with rubber bands wound around it, that had been inked with a water base ink.  I even tried using  some Sharpie markers, then hitting them with alcohol spray (since these are alcohol base pens).  I finally used Staz-On ink with my acrylic roller......like that effect, and then just played with some inks running them as I turn and twisted the paper.  Once it all dried I wrote the word Experiment with a Calligraphy pen and outlined it with a silver paint pen.   I wanted to remember that this page was just an experiment! LOL!
 
Thanks for stopping by. please let me know you were here.

  2. Your experiment turned out SUPER. I was really impressed. I fell in love with that background. And of course, you do such wonderful things with a calligraphy pen.
