Colour--UKS ART Journal

Hurray!! I finished my first page, and here it is.  The colours are a bit dark but its done.
I painted the page with gesso then painted acrylic Lemon Yellow, Scarlet Red & Titanium White.  Drew the path which I had already covered with newspaper before painting. Then gesso again on path.Sprayed Procion Dye Turquoise through Tim Holtz Ransom Mask( letters)  Stamped the edge in black with do-crafts stamp and the woman is a  stamp I made from fun foam from a tracing.  Other stamps from Scrollworks.
Outlined all with a black Sharpie pen.  Thanks for looking.


  1. This is lovely, kind of vintage :) I love the cover too.

  2. Kay your page is STUNNING - You are a natural girl. No baby steps for you! I'm loving the techniques you have used and I LOVE that lady stamp!
    Welcome to the wonderful world of Art Journaling - I'm sure you are going to enjoy the ride - you are a natural artist!
    Ahhh and I see in your profile you're a messy crafter - I keep telling my hubby that's just the sign of an artist hard in creativity!
    So looking forward to seeing more pages from you.

    1. Oh thanks Chris you are very kind. Its exciting when someone comments on your blog. I think I am going to like this. regards kay
