Okay so i decided to do a textured frog using my stencil today.
Step 1: I applied Modelling paste through the stencil with a palette knife.
Step 2: I let it dry over night.
Step 3: I gessoed the frog to seal it and then added bit so collage pieces to the page – book text and painted papers.
Step 4: I printed out a photo of myself and adhered it to the page. Then i painted most of the page with greens, blues and white acrylic paints.
Step 5: I placed the stencil ontop of my page and painted the frog through the stencil.
Step 6: I added some painted scallops, talk bubble, talking swirl for the frog and some graphite accents to the frog, scallops and talk bubble. I glued some painted papers to the face and then wrote my text with micron pens.
Yesterday was not the greatest day – i was in a funk and couldn’t get out of it………so rather than try and be all shiny, happy and fake i thought i’d take this opportunity to Journal about it – art journaling as you know can be oh so theraputic!
