Silhouette- Beautiful Smoke, Dylusions Spray

I am so encouraged by the compliments I received on my two posts, I had to make another art journal page ASAP!!! The comments and compliments were the fuel I needed.  

Art Journal Page
  1. I started by drawing the silhouette image. The image was cut out and painted black. Later on it was glued to the page.
  2. The background was sprayed with 3 different Dylusions Ink Sprays. I love the bright colors!! 
  3. I used three different stencils. I sprayed more Dylusions Ink through one stencil
    • The second stencil was a swirl stencil with black paint
    • The third stencil is a Tim Holtz small circle stencil and Archival Ink
  4. A grid stamp with black Archival Ink
  5.  A water bottle cap dipped in white acrylic paint touched down on the page a few times.
I learned here Dylusions aren't permanent.They certainly are bold and eye catching. But you should keep in mind they are water activated.

I tried to create a smoke look from her mouth. LOL that didn't turn out how I wanted. The last thing I did was use a paint brush and black acrylic paint to add the checkered border.

I like it! I'm a happy gal! Thanks for stopping by
