My latest entry for Art Journal Journey is using a photo from a flyer inside a magazine. I had intended making a photo transfer but then realised that the view would be wrong, for this is also a memory of my visit to Venice. If you have been reading my blog for a while you may remember my traumatic(I know….over used word!)trip onto the Grand Canal on a gondola!(See here)
The quote was one I found via my phone.
The main background was made so long ago and has been in my journal just waiting for me to DO something!!
I made the watery background onto watercolour paper using Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean distress inks and stamped using the same colours. A little bit of Grunge paste through stencil and then added Viva Inka- Gold - Aquamarine by rubbing over with my finger. The 'waves' are a stem from Darcy's PA EDY10
I am loving Sheila's theme of Architecture at Art Journal Journey although I am still trying to visit other folk who have entered this great challenge!
Thanks for looking, Chris
