Mini Art Journal: Fortune Teller

Mini Art Journal Fortune Teller
This week in my pocket size art journal, I created another spread using stamps from Lost Coast Designs and I chose this beautiful Mucha woman with Globe image as focal point and depicted her as a fortune teller.

I stamped her on sticker paper, colored her in with Letraset promarkers and cut her out with tiny sharp scissors. The background is made with different acrylic & metallic paints on which I stamped the Grunge background stamp on with Staz On Violet.

The I took Spray Webbing background stamp and stamped it on the sides with Staz On Cherry black.

I wanted to have more texture in the middle part so I stamped the grunge background again this time with Staz On dark royal purple which gave a better impression on the paper. I took a brick stencil and Distress ink chipped Sapphire and sponged the ink with a blending tool through the stencil. I liked the effect and cut the background to size and adhered to the journal. I stuck the woman to the right side of the spread as I wanted her to face the left side.

With my distress crayons I made the aria around the woman lighter and near her feet a bit darker. In and around the globe I used yellow tones, to depict a glowing orb. Then I got to work on the left side and stamped "no one knows what the future holds" on sticker paper and cut it into strips.

Before I adhered it to the page I colored the strips yellow with the distress markers. After I stuck them in I took a blue and white distress marker to underline the words.

To finish off the spread I took a black marker and doodled around the edges but that fell flat and I wanted it to pop more. So I got a white gel pen and doodled over the black and though it does pop now I think I made it a bit too busy with the zigzag edges. I did zigzag because i wanted to doodle completely over the black lines, but next time I do it less "fanatically" haha! Anyhow, art journalling is all bout the process and you learn stuff all the time while making things and that is what I love about it.
 This is also my 3rd and final entry for this month's Craft Stamper's September Take it, Make It challenge :)
