The Sun Rises

Just finished this journal page, inspired by Valerie's blog post.  She has photos of the most amazing sun rises on her blog.......and she is the hostess for this month's  Art Journal Journey challenge: Light and Darkness.
I wrote the sentiment, then traced it with a black sharpie. Then I covered the words with Washi tape and painted all the negative space black, since Washi tape is slightly transparent you can still see the letter.  Once I got all that negative space painted....phew! I painted the sun rise over some mountains.
To make the words pop a little more I went around them with a white Gel writing over the texture the tape left was a little you can see.....LOL!
Thanks for stopping by.....

  1. This is beautiful Krisha, and is exactly what I feel and experience every morning when I see the sky changing colour and the sun rising. Love how you did the lettering, too. Thanks for another entry for AJJ, and more thanks that you chose a theme so close to my heart!. Off to bed now, so I'll wish you a good night! Hugs, Valerie

  2. Beautiful sunrise painting and sentiment! You must have so much patience covering all that negative space with black and I'm in awe of the contours and texture you have created on those mountains with that dark colour palette - amazing! Have a lovely weekend! J :-)

  3. I adore the way you used the washi tape. That was extremely clever. I also like that you actually drew the scene, too. You are extremely clever.

  4. Its a lovely painting of the sunrise and the way you accented the quote makes it look fantastic against the black. Its a great page.

  5. You and I are on the same page again Krisha. I haven't taken it off my camera yet, but wait until you see my next post. You beat me to it this time. :) Hope its a wonderful weekend. Hugs-Erika

  6. That's absolutely beautiful Krisha! Amazing! Thank you for joining AJJ again!
