art journal.- something new

El negro es el protagonista en esta página del art journal

Hi. Covering all the background using black gesso was one technique that I wanted to test for a while. I have seen it several times but I felt afraid of making a mess. Check if you like how it ended up this new page of my art journal.

To follow the process, here you have the video tutorial:

If you want to have a look at the details, these closer pictures are for you:

What do you think? I didn’t lie when I told you that I wanted to use my art journal to test a lot of supplies and styles. I like the outcome and the final look even if I am not a really black fan.

List of supplies: stencil; white gesso by Vallejo; brushes from Tiger; white embossing paste by Dreamweaver; cheap palette knives; Dylusions paint (Polished Jade, Fresh Lime, Tangerine Dream and Crushed Grape); black gesso by DecoArt; water based white paint Sharpie marker; a normal black marker and white enamel accents by Ranger.

I hope you like it.
