Art Journal Prompt: Encroaching
Create a page, canvas, musical score, poem or whatever strikes your fancy that demonstrates.. Encroaching.
Definition of ENCROACH
- to enter by gradual steps or by stealth into the possessions or rights of another
- to advance beyond the usual or proper limits <the gradually encroaching sea>
How I created my page:
I’m testing out a Snappy Li’l Journal made with scrapbooking paper. It took all these layers VERY well with no curling at all. Wow. I’m going to make a lot more of these and put them in the shop.
First step – Background
Second step – Blend. I blended the color with a wet brush and dabbed with a napkin to pick some up.
Third step – Layers.
Fourth step – Encroaching Stencils
Fifth step – Outline. I used a pitt pen to outline the stencils and I was NOT careful in the process. Sloppy was good.
Dark – I decided that some darkness was needed so did dark gray lines in the spaces around the stencils and used the pit pen to draw circles over and between the lines.
Supplies used today:
- pitt artist pens
- neocolor II water-soluble crayons
- liquid acrylic paint
- gel medium
- glazing liquid
A Word from Tee:
I’m adding a slideshow of student’s journals to the site. It’s so exciting to see you guys going crazy with making these journals. They are so fun and so fast… it’s like a fever!
