I entered the Creative Jumpstart event this year at  It is so much fun!  I’m so glad I entered it!   All of the videos are so inspirational and fun to watch.  I’m really learning a lot.

Anyway, I’m entering one of my endeavors (two journal pages) in the Giveaway by Liquitex.  I really love their products and hopefully can win some more.  Below is my entry.

This is my second attempt with this method of laying the paints out on a palette and rolling them out with a brayer; and then I added all kinds of designs over the palette paper with various household items; a used paper towel tube, corregated paper, corregated cardboard from a box and a comb.  Then I tore off the palette paper and layed it over my journal pages and printed it by rubbing over the back with the brayer.  I love this technique and the interesting designs that come from it.  Below is a closer look at the two pages.

When I painted the girl, I let some of the background show through.  I was trying to capture a kind of dreamy look.  I think I could have done it better, but there’s only so much time in a day!  After I painted her hair and while the paint was still wet, I applied Liquitex Flexible Modeling Paste over her hair with a palette knife.  Then I combed  through it with the palette knife and the comb in order to mix some of the hair color in with it.  I also used the modeling paste mixed with color to stamp some of the circles that the “dream” letters are in.  I also used Liquitex white gesso behind the “dream” letters.
