Journal page

Decided to try something different using masking tape & various circles.
 First off I stencilled my page. I added black to the grey to make it dingy.  Then I realised I should have painted the page after I gesso it.  Yep I had to paint in between the bricks with tiny brush. Then I added more black to do the larger areas. Well what else is an art journal for but to learn in & have fun.
 Take 2 bit of the card that I created from the cardboard box I stuck them side by side & covered in masking tape.  Run a pencil line around the mummy stencil I created & inked it.  After cutting it out I inked the edges a darker colour.
After gluing the mummy down, I used both ends of a skewer, top of a pacer, bottom on my picker tool to create eyes in the dark.  Now all that's left to do is add some moss when this is dry.  Another bit of fun :)

I decided it needed stamping on the mummy, a quote as well as the moss.  I painted a small area then sprinkled flocking powder on.

This seems to be one of those pages that I look at & add too
