Art Journal continued....

i tried to scan and also take a photograph of the latest journal entry but couldn't quite get it to show all the textures on the picture... white is a hard colour to scan!!! I applied crackle medium to the entire painting.. then painted over it.. so that it looks aged. What i learnt is that while the top layer of paint is still wet, you can actually scratch marks by just scratching it with a sharp point , pen nib etc... Part of the face has been drawn by scratching and later enhanced with colour pencils.

It's been so much fun seeing what everyone else is doing on their journals. There is a list of blog sites on Misty's blog.. I am feeling so inspired but work starts on monday.. i realized at a friend's place yesterday that i may have forgotten my work computer's password.. oops


Let's see if i can fit more playing tomorrow :)
