Here's a little abstract journal page that I created for this week's AlphabeThursday. This is something I usually don't do. But since I couldn't think of an Italian place-name or word that began with the Letter K, I decided to play with some of my new stamps.
I began with a "Faded Text Background" stamp and covered the entire page with archival ink. Then I stamped the letter k all over the page with Joe Hill Distress Ink. This ink isn't waterproof - it's perfect for when you're not adding water. But I wanted to sprits my page with water and get the colors to bleed a little. Neat!
On top of my journal page, I added some homemade paper that I made about a year ago, and sprits the page with more water. I've been thinking about papermaking all week... Friday evening, I'm taking a papermaking class at the Art Center down the street from my house; I decided to get more involved in the art scene in my hometown.
I smeared some orangey-yellow watercolors on one side. And to finish off the page, I added the "LETTER K" using some small store-bought stamps - with waterproof ink!
Come by the AlphabeThursday classroom, and see what everyone is doing!
