Art Journaling with Kuretake

I showed some pictures a few weeks ago of me getting messy and completely ruining my nails (so worth it!) with Kuretake Alcohol Inks - I just love them and have lots more projects planned with them.

One of the projects I made from this process.....

Was this Art Journaling panel....

I used 3 colours of alcohol ink to make the background, using thinner on a kitchen towel to lift the colour to make the lighter circles. The stars are made from Gesso'ed canvas on a roll, again coloured with alcohol ink and stamped using Staz-On. The girl is my Doodle Dolls stamp stamped onto coated Kraft wrapping paper (also on a roll and totally bargainous - look out for it in stationery shops, it's about £1!) and then coloured with Kuretake Posterman Pens. I then journalled over it when dry using a Kuretake Writer Pen.

It's taken me a while to get the courage to show this piece, it's always scarier showing Art Journaling because it's more personal and has your own thoughts and feelins wrapped up in them, it's like showing someone your Diary!

I do love this piece though, it sits in my studio and is a daily reminder to be a little bit braver than the day before - and who knows what you can do!
