Hi there, Jana here with you today and i have some fun new Junque Journal Pages to share. I grabbed the August Prompts and worked on the second week; Bright and Bold Colors, Plastic Wrap, Numbers and white Gesso wash.
Here are my supplies for today: Watercolor Refills, Junque Journal, Watercolors, Acrylic Paints, Stencils, Big Stencil Brush, Gesso and some Die Cuts
I decided to work with three different watercolors and three different acrylic paints. I wanted to mix them together so I looked for matching colors. I really love to mix and match different types of Medias. This gives you a nice look of different layers and different tones.
I primed all of my Watercolor Re-Fill Papers with a thin coat of the perfect Gesso, I wanted to add a lot of water and I just wanted to get sure that the paper will not curl up. I added watercolors to my first page and I also added water to the paper, that allows the colors to mix and blend and of course to move around… this gives nice mixes of the colors and a nice blended crossing between the colors.
I tried to stamp with the Plastic Wrap through one of the stencils, but I failed. Lesson learned. I grabbed some white gesso, the big stencil brush and a stencil instead and added a nice white image to the bright watercolors.
My first try was to add the colors to the paper in circular motion but this worked to not that good. I took some of the watercolors with it and it kinda mixed together and the gesso was not white anymore (You can see it on the following picture in the lower right corner). The second try was to just dab the gesso through the stencil and this worked perfect! I added some white gesso splatters to finish this background.
To finish this page I only added a few things, a black number, a label (with the Medias/Tools on it) and a brush lettering quote. I love how the black looks on the colors.
The second page was also made on a gesso primed watercolor paper. I tried the Plastic Wrap stamping with watercolors. I love this new technique. I have stamped with all kind of different things but never tried some plastic wrap; so much fun!
I used the same elements to finish this page.
For the third page I decided to stamp with acrylic paint and this gives you a totally different look then the watercolors. You can see more details from the plastic.
Before I finished this page I added some matching acrylic paint splatters, I love how this looks. You don´t need much stuff to create some very interesting pages, right? This page also got a black number, a label with used materials/tools and a quote. I am totally happy how all of the pages turned out. It´s nice to try some new things from time to time and the Junque Journal Prompts are always good for it!
Here is a little process video for you to watch, enjoy it!
