AAJS6: Sharon's Pages in Roz's Art Nouveau Journal
I am sharing my pages in Roz's Art Nouveau Journal.
I have to start out saying I really wasn't aware of the difference between Art "Deco" and Art "Nouveau" until explained to me by Rick St Dennis - a talented artist - if you look him up he has been involved in all sorts of productions in the US and knows about costume design etc. I am on hid digi stamp design team and he provided this gorgeous Art Nouveau woman for me to use and also explained that Art Nouveau is more "organic" and flowing than Art Deco - which was a perfect way to explain because I totally understand now when I look at Deco and Nouveau!!
So I have learnt something with the creation of these pages!!!!
I started with the standard coat of Gesso LOL!
Added some blobs of watercolour paint!
Spritzed the blobs with water and dragged down the page with a spatula - my favourite tool!!
I added a floral border stamp by Blank Page Muse to the page edges with archival ink.
I coloured the digi stamp with Copic markers and fussy cut and printed out the quote on kraft coloured paper.
Adhered all the elements to the pages and it is all done!!
I tried to keep the colours "organic" and natural looking - not too bright and the pages flowing.
I'm happy with how it turned out!
