I am a Slipping Glimpser – Art Journal Spread

Each new glimpse is determined by many, many glimpses before. It’s this glimpse which inspires you — like an occurrence. And I notice those are always my moment of having an idea that maybe I could start a painting… As a matter of fact, I’m really slipping, most of the time, into that glimpse. I’m like a slipping glimpser.

-Willem de Kooning

I had such a fun time playing with this spread. Some stamping with the Versailles and Toledo Foam Stamps and Acrylic Paint .

I transferred some parts of a photo of a graffiti wall I took in San Francisco with Gel Medium  and stamped in between with the Stroll Through The Hood 1 and Stroll Through the Hood 2 as well as the Cardboard Stamp Sets.

I also played with my newish Caran’d Ache Museum Aquarelle Pencils – I basically dipped them in water and then went to town creating color blocks and marks. LOVE how vibrant they are !

I love the grungy look of this spread – I am super happy how it turned out. Here are some of the supplies I used – some links are affiliate links

    The layers and layers are awesome.
    I must challenge myself to doing a page with this many layers!
