Art Journal Page: To See The Light [Wanderlust]

To See The Light

Every other Saturday on the Wanderlust 2016 art journaling journey, we are given a prompt for a page in our ‘Wanderlust Book’. This week the prompt was ‘What I really want is…’, and this is my response to it. I thought it would be fun to do a time lapse video of me creating the page, showing the layers and techniques I have used. It’s been a while since I have painted the lettering on a page, and the DecoArt Fluid Acrylic Primary Yellow was a doddle to use, flowing well off the brush and absolutely opaque on application. I think I may have mentioned before how I won’t be working in a wire-o journal again… I need to replan pages to avoid my focal point being in the centre.

Products used:
Background: DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic: Primary Yellow, DecoArt Media Gesso
Glaze: DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic: Primary Yellow, Quinacridone Gold
Napkin decoupage applied and sealed with DecoArt Media Matte Medium
DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic: Primary Magenta mixed with Titan Buff, Titan Buff
White Sharpie Pen (oil-based)
DecoArt Media Ultra Matte Varnish to seal.

  1. This is a lovely interpretation of the second prompt. I have only just signed up for it and have yet had time to even start. I’ll be following you with interest.
