The nights are turning cooler and autumn is in the air. I created these art journal pages with the beginning of fall on my mind which always brings a song to my heart.
I started by crumpling up old hymnal pages, ran a sepia ink pad across to accentuate the wrinkles, then glued them to my journal pages. I coated the pages with clear gesso. I sponged yellow, red and pomegranate acrylic paints in different areas through the Large Foliage stencil, rotating it in different directions to cover the pages. I stamped the Large and Small Daisy stamps several times onto deli paper and colored them with yellow and carmine red colored pencils. I fussy cut them and collaged them to the page with matte medium. I used a green india ink marker to outline them and add a border to the pages. I sponged olive acrylic paint through the Alpha stencil to create the word. I used black and white pens to outline the flowers and word and to create a border around the pages. Finally, I rubbed sepia and plum ink pads around the edges of the pages to highlight the wrinkles.
