Starry Night – Magenta DT Post

With the days getting longer, I am dreaming of summer nights and walks in the moonlight. How I would love to stumble across a scene like this.

Magenta Post

I created this art journal page using one of my all time favorite stamps, the Heron. I started by masking off the page to create a nice crisp border. I added Dylusions acrylic paint in London Blue with a foam applicator across the entire page.

Magenta 1

Using my finger, I smudged Dylusions After Midnight onto a few areas of the page.

Magenta 2

I watered down some white paint to create splatters for stars.

Magenta 3

I stamped the images with Versafine Onyx Black ink, then painted the Heron white.

Magenta 4

Carefully remove the masking tape when page is dry.

Sail Away – Magenta DT Post

I love the versatility of Nuance powders. I decided to try them on Yupo paper and was thrilled with the “magical” result.

I made puddles of color on my palette with Nuance and plenty of water, then dipped my brush in one of the colors at a time and added it to the Yupo.  I tipped the paper and allowed the colors to flow and swirl around the page. I added more color as needed with the brush, just touching the tip of the brush to the page and letting the circles of color expand or dragging them around the page. Once it had dried thoroughly, I used Cobalt Archival Ink for the There is Magic sentiment and Compass Rose stamps and to sponge color through the Sail Boat stencil. I applied white paint through the Stars stencil with a sponge.

I hope you try this technique and have as much fun as I did.
