Hi everyone, Mou here with today's post! It's an art journal page. We are not Irish, but living here in the U.S., we are touched by many cultures and their celebrations in one way or another. For instance, on St. Patrick's Day, the kids have to wear something green to school and we love having Shamrock shakes from McDonald's... and I think it's great to have these opportunities to learn about other countries and cultures.
To create this page, I took the following steps:
Attach old book paper to journal page with Gel Medium.
When dry, apply a coat of Gesso.
Sketch a drink cup with straw.
Color the page with Gelatos®colors: Lavender, Red Cherry, Mango, Pistachio, Blueberry, Grape, Coconut, Aqua Dolce, and Black Cherry. Blend with waterbrush.
Journal next to the cup with PITT® artist pen BLACK.
Dot the page with Stamper's Big White pen to finish.
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents: Gesso, Gel Medium,
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: Blueberry, Grape (BLUE set); Lavender, Red Cherry (RED set); Mango (YELLOW set); Pistachio (GREEN set); Aqua Dolce (50's DINER); Coconut (NEUTRALS set); Black Cherry (STEAMPUNK set)
Hope you enjoyed today's post and would journal about the big and little things about how other cultures impact your lives!
And now, the winners of March 2015 Take the Challenge with Mou...
