Rusty Art Journal Page


I did an experiment last night with one of my journal pages-I love how it came out!

I rusted a part of the page itself with a rust kit. I wasn't sure how it would come out but I like the effect! Its hard to tell in the scan! My son gave it his seal of approval though!

The circle things on the page are actually impressions from washers with Copper Acrylics and of course this page has my notorious dip pen ink blotches :)

So glad it worked Kristy. The rust looks good and the whole page is put together so well! I will have to try that myself.

I love it, too. I'll have to try the rust technique when I have time to just play a bit. And I love the blothes from your dip pen. Must check into that, too!

Thanks so much for stopping by my website. The Fluer de lise is 5x7. I haven't finished it yet; maybe tomorrow or this week-end.

What I love about your art is the richness of colors and textures....this piece is a perfect example of that. Beautiful!

Hmm, I was not surprised that you didn't have a new post for Saturday -- to busy reading Book 4 of the Twilight saga, huh?

I just finished Book 3.

I wrote about you on my blog the other day. Check it out.
