Next, of course, came the fun part of watching the colors show their vibrant side as water was added with a paint brush.
Once the background was dry, I chose one of my favorite large stamps--Letter Writing by Hero Arts--to add texture and interest. Once dry (I can never wait so I always have my heat gun "at the ready"), I adhered my mannequins with a bit of ModPodge. I knew that I wanted to add a bit of white to my page, so grabbed some white acrylic paint and my bubble wrap! I also had a white rub-on image which I added to the center right, but since you could barely see it, I didn't follow the "rule of three" and stopped at one!
I am glad that I took a break from scrapbooking this afternoon to make this journal page. I always find working in my art journal both relaxing and renewing. I am glad, too, that you took a break and visited my art journaling blog. Please take a moment to JOIN if you have not already done so, and leave a message to let me know you were here!
