Pages for HJ's Art Journal
This time I decided to tear myself away from my safe comforting watercolors and actually open one of the jars of acrylics I bought two months ago! I wanted to play around with creating backgrounds and textures using various wacky printing methods. I painted on and then printed bubble wrap, a feather, embossed paper and a seasponge. I also used both tulle and a perforated ribbon as a stencil, rolled grooved beads strung on a wire through paint and then across paper, and attached various things to a brayer before rolling it on paper. The "print" results were pleasing, and because of the viscosity of acrylics, have a wonderful dimensional texture to them!
