Elisa here from the design team for Ink Art Designs with my latest creation, a theatrical art journal page featuring a gorgeous stamp from Stampotique.
I created this page whilst on a crafty retreat with my awesome bestie Tanya Froud. I had the idea to create a stage and use the light on his wings and Tanya came up with the quote and hand drew the cute spider to finish it off for me.
Sometimes your most favourite arty project comes from collaboration with friends!
To start, I painted the stage, curtains and hanging lights in using a few different mediums including Acrylic Paints, watercolours and inks. I distressed and grunged up the curtains to look old and frayed. I painted the floor boards to look like old wooden boards and added the spotlights by using white gesso and neon yellow watercolour from the Art by Marlene Brighter than Bright watercolours. I stamped the image onto heavy white cardstock and coloured using watercolours. I added the neon highlights on the tips of the wings and fussy cut the image out and added to the journal page. I then handed over my page to Tanya to add her quotes and the cutesy hand drawn spider for me. I just love how it turned out!
