TAKING MY PENCIL TO THE SECOND FLOOR
The sixth challenge on the Second Floor was to use your pencil. I rarely use pencil so this was a stretch but I knew what I wanted to try right away. First I took my Tim Holtz Spring and Summer Distress inks and covered my pages. Next I sprayed them with water, let them drip, mushed them together and eventually rolled paper towel over the last of the dampness. I loved the color combination. Next I took out several different Crafter's Worshop templates. Using a pencil I added them randomly all over the page until I was satisfied. Here is the result:
I usually use quotes over my art journal backgrounds but I was afraid that the words would get lost in the pencil so it took a bit of deciding for what came next. I was just at EXPO and picked up a few word stamps at Rubbernecker that I felt would work well on this background because they were bold. Here's the result:
I hope you have enjoyed another trip with me to the Second Floor.
