It's been quiet here this week, but I promise it is only because there are a LOT of exciting posts and projects coming up... starting right now :) There will also be a very special hop happening tomorrow AND another exciting hop on Sunday! Stop back here over the weekend... it'll be good ;)
Today I'm sharing an art journal page for the Unity Friends With Flair today. This page is exciting for me because I used a new-to-me color combination and some untouched beautiful Unity stamps.
I never knew neon could be so gorgeous! There are multiple layers and elements going on with this page (cuz we know when something doesn't look right... put more gesso on top!). The main elements are the beautiful Unity stamps: "Donna Downey Peony", "You are right where you should be" (Donna Downey), and "Tattered Chicken Wire".
I wasn't getting the coverage I wanted with my usual StazOn ink, so I just coated all the stamps in black acrylic paint... and they stamped perfectly! That will probably be my go-to from now on. In the photo above you can see some of the neon ink chicken wire stamping.
Another new-to-me product... GLITTER MOD PODGE! Why have I gone a decade of my life without it?! So here you see the entire page was given a generous coat of glitter mod podge. Why wouldn't it be?
A date stamp and a couple fun rub-ons finish this page. I'll be playing with neons again in the very near future! Most of my supplies used are listed in the thumbnail images below. Items not shown: black and white acrylic paint from Golden, teal and fuschia acrylic paint from Americana.
I'm also entering this page into the color challenge with Unity, based on these colors:
Don't forget to stop back throughout the weekend!
