I wanted to try that cutout technique from my last post but I didn't have many pages left in my journal so I just did one cutout and used the graphic available. I used spray inks and stencils on the background, cut out the circle and then the vine was added and embellished.
This is the back of that page so although the vine is the same it does look different on a different background. I tried to use different colors on this vine. I use pitt markers for the colors. I think I will try this technique again in a new journal and use some different shape cutouts and maybe plan a little bit more what can be seen through the cutout.
This page was another spray ink and stencil background. I used charcoal and china marker on the background to highlight areas. I found the crown stamp at Michaels in the $1 bargain bin, what a deal.
On this page I had this wild background and it sat for weeks. I decided this crow wanted to be there. Instead of just painting him black as I normally would, I thought he should be purple. I don't know what he is trying to say but I am sure its important. This is a 2 page spread but I haven't done the other half yet, maybe the crow is looking away from whoever is on the left side of the page.
