After Limor Webber’s Ustream class of Tuesday evening, I’ve wanted to try my hand at the abstract art technique she taught. Check out the recording on her YouTube channel here. I loved the canvas she did and although I didn’t brave it on a canvas, I did do attempt a page in my Art Journal. I really like how it turned out! For the background I started out with a couple of pieces from a black/grey and white napkin and then added a bunch of random paint to cover the page. I used some of my Liquitex Basic’s acrylic paints in Brilliant Yellow Green, Primary Yellow, Canmium Orange Hue and Prism Violet. I them stamped random images with my StazOn to help fill in the background and add texture. I also stamped a few random sayings onto the page as well. I took some Liquitex acrylic Primary Blue and Naphthol Crimson and also randomly applied some smudges with my fingers to the page. I then took a couple of round containers and some Liquitex Mars Black acrylic paint and outlined certain spots on the page and then doodled around them with my white Unibal Signo pen. Had a blast with this page and really felt like I was outside my comfort zone. Here’s the napkin I used on my background.
And here’s my page…..
Here’s a couple of close-ups of the colors and textures in the background.
Had a blast…..may even try this on a canvas one day….lol.
Thanks for popping in…..I’m off to go and find something else to play with in my craft room. :o)
