Queen of Arts - Journal Pages


After watching several Youtube tutorials by Karen Campbell, I decided that my art journal needed a new mixed media piece.

I started with the background of ripped book pages and used matter medium adhesive. I added color with Distress Ink and then gave it a light coat of white gesso.

Here's where the fun begins, designing the queen's face with numerous supplies:

Pencil, acrylic paint, Stabilo pencil, Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Pen, Carand ache Crayons, Pearlescent Watercolors, Posca Pen, and a Gelly Roll Pen for highlights

I'm really happy with this two page spread!

Gorgeous pages. That background with all that texture is perfect for your drawing. I love how you've played with the white tone to create contrast in the face. Thanks for joining us at A Place To Start. Hugs, María.
