Comp Art Journal Page 4


I think this is my last post for the day. For some reason, I really like this journal page. I bought a set of metallic poster paints at Michael's for $2.97. I used one of the shades of gold & copper here, kind of messily. Then, based on the suggestion of someone in the CompositionArtJournals group, I finally broke out the Caran D'ache water soluable crayons I've had but never used. I made the circles and then went at them with a wet paintbrush. I'm happy with the effect, though in this scan, you can't tell the paint is metallic.

This page will look really wild when you add the writing over the transparent washes. Very chic, especially with the metallic paint glittering in the background.

Kira, I love this page! Very unique. I agree with Kathleen Marie, it will really look great when you journal on it. Might be hard to cover up, tho!!

Try working the golds over a darker support - it will really bring out their glow
