Art journal page project

Hello happy journalers ! 
Do you like art journaling ? I hope so, since our May challenge is  Journaling your heART out!
For those of you who are not at ease with art journaling, I will share this project with you. I got inspiration from Tracy Scott's art.

Materials :
paper or cardboard
acrylic paint
white gesso
black Archival ink
Artistic Stamper Mask : Large Dot 
Artistic Stamper stamps :
Backgrounds : Hessian, Cogs,
Katy Leitch : Messy Art, Encyclopaedia Botanica 
Seaside : Seaside No. 1 # 018
Neil Walker : Alphabet Soup

Start by painting the page with yellow, green and pink acrylics, and then stencil the large dots with gesso :

Stamp Dots Background with gesso and Hessian with black Archival :

Stamp Hessian, Cogs and Messy with black Archival, and again Dots Background with gesso on other places :

Draw circles with black acrylic paint on a thin brush, let it drip here and there, allow it to dry and then fill the circles with acrylic paints. 
Create shadows around the circles with paint or charcoal :

Stamp Alphabet soup with white acrylic, and with black Archival ink blots (from the Messy Art plate) and text (from the Encyclopaedia Botanica one) into the circles :

And here is the final page. Since my pictures from Gil Bruvel were relating to the sea world, I have finished by stamping some shells and starfishs :

Once you’re done with your art journal page, you can post it here to participate in our May challenge to win some fabulous Artistic Stamper stamps !

Thanks so much for stopping by,
your comments are very much appreciated.
