Today I'm sharing one of my art journal pages, I don't often share these but this one I'm making an exception for as I had such fun making it with my Aquatone sticks! Aquatone is probably the most fun art material I've had since I was a child with a box of crayons in every colour. These highly pigmented sticks of colour blend with water to create the most rich, intense and vibrant colours; I just love using them whenever I can, especially in my art journaling!
For this page, done in my little Derwent Journal, I lightly misted the page with water and then blended the colours, starting with the lightest yellow in the middle out to the darkest purple at the edges. Once dry I went over again, this time wetting the Aquatone sticks and going over where I thought I needed more colour or to blend the colours together better - I love the way these layer...
Once it was dry, I then misted and spattered some white spray over the top, I thought it looked like stars so I knew then exactly what to doodle over it!
Once the spray was dry I then used a black pen to doodle my picture over the top, finishing with a border and the quote, one of my favourites. I finally added some silver stars which I also doodled around to make them stand out...
I hope you'll give Aquatone, and Art Journaling, a try - it's a great free way to make art! If you'd like to share your projects over on the Derwent Facebook page we'd love to see them! I’ll be back soon with another project.
