Art is Freedom Concertina Journal

by Deb Adams

Hi Scrap FX readers,

Today I am sharing a folding Journal I created full of bright colours, Arty words & Inspiration.

I started out making a heap of prints using a Gelli plate with Acrylic Paints.

Textures added with stencils & stamps.

I generally kept the colours light as I wanted to apply the Collage Paper images of the sketchy girls faces,

the bold arty sentiments & those eyes!

Love how the torn layers of the Stitched rice papers become semi translucent

over the background.

The Leafy Circle stamp was randomly stamped on each page with Hickory Smoke Distress oxide,

then drawn in sketchy outline with a black posca pen.

Pan Pastels, coloured pencils & posca pens used to blend & then highlight the faces & eyes on each page.

I also coloured around the words to help them blend into the background.

The back cover of the Journal says it all for me…

& I am mesmerised by those beautiful eyes!

Cheers for now,   Deb   oz paper scrap art
