'Colour' Art Journal Page Tutorial

Good morning lovelies, Im here today with a little tutorial on my newest page in my Square Dylusions Journal for the 'A Sprinkle of Imagination' design team....

I'm really starting to love these 8x8 inch pages, having always worked in the Large Dylusions Journal it took a bit of getting used to this format.

I started by using Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylics in lime, lemon, turquoise and lapis and also Golden Fluid Acrylic Paint in teal, I put the colours on with my fingers and just spread them around the page until I was happy...

Next I went in with a Dina Wakley Stencil and some texture paste, I chose this stencil as it reminded me of the colour wheel, I heat dried the texture paste and once dry I used Dina's ruby and umber paints and again spread them on randomly with my fingers, I also added some red dots with Goldens Fluid Acrylic Red paint and again just using my fingers to do this, I also added some black lines with the side of an old credit card...

Next I painted in some of the colour wheel segments with Dina's magenta paint and also with my fingers added some of this randomly to my page to tie in the colour, I used one of Dina's stamps from the Woodcuts set with a black archival ink pad and added to various places on my page. 
I used another of Dina's stencils and some white paint to add some further detail to my page, and then scribbled around those shapes with a pencil. I then took some black paint and went around the outside of the colour wheels and inbetween them to make them stand out from the page....

Next I used the Dylusions bubble stencil and some texture paste and stencilled randomly onto my page leaving to dry (you could use a heat gun for this) and added some white splatters to the whole page, earlier in the day I had been sorting out all my paints and had pulled some dry paint out of some of the lids (you know where it all gets clogged up around the top of the tubes or bottles) I knew some of these would be perfect for this page so I used some of Prima's 3D Matt gel to glue these to my page. Once everything was dry I then went over the top of everything with gold paint, I added a touch of paint to my finger and rubbed it over all the raised areas and added some randomly to my page...

Nearly finished... I stamped the word 'Colour' with the Tim Holtz alphabet stamp set and used a black archival pen to scribble circles around my colour wheels and paint splats, I also randomly scribbled around some of the texture paste bubbles....

The final touch was to add some white gel pen to the letters to give them a little bit of interest...

Thank you for stopping by today I hope you are feeling inspired and you give it a try !!

Bright and painty hugs
