“You never win a fight with someone who only lives in his reality.”
This art journal page is using a page from the sold out 2022 Artist Almanac – don’t dismay though, 2023 is in the works ;)
I started by rolling out yellow paint with a brayer to create some texture on the page, and added red acrylic paint onto a palette knife and lightly pressed it onto the yellow background, pulling it down or to the side. After it dried, I used water based spray paints, sprayed through an older Stampendous stencil (not available anymore sorry) – and my What’s The Point stencil (yes that guy is still available).
The only reason I used the old stencil is because I had used it on the background of the calendar page and I wanted to incorporate the form, but you could also make some paint splashes onto a thin piece of cardboard and then cut the form out to make your own stencil. Or if you are brave, make some big paint splashes right on top of the page. Next I adhered the calendar page with double sided adhesive.
The spray paint wasn’t perfectly dried yet and it wound up clogging up my sharpie ball pen which I love to use for journaling – a good reminder to be patient…
Here are some of the supplies I used:
