Actually, I can!
Sometimes, when you think things are just not working out and you want to give up, this is a good reminder. As you can see I was in the mood for a grungy art journal spread.
Next, I layered gesso and unbleached titanium and scraped away some parts. Then I stamped with the same foam stamps using the red and magenta colors of the background on top. I stamped mixing different tints and shades with the colors I already used but also incorporated gold and copper in between.
For the middle section of each side of my journal spread, I painted a music sheet with gold and copper acrylic paint, and then stamped using the positive and the negative Stamp of the Versailles set and black paint on top of it.
I tore the music sheet up and pasted it to the spread left and right and added a couple more layers of stamping and over-painting.
I added some charcoal pencil marks and wrote out the text.
I love the result and the weathered pattern look.
I felt so much better when I was done with this spread – yeah for art journaling *wink
