Take me to your leader! - Art Journal Page

Good morning! Good news from my hospital appointment the other day... my eyes (with my glasses!) exceed the wheelchair clinics requirements, so they trust me not to blindly run over a little old lady when our and about in my powerchair!  Still got a road proficiency test to do though, whatever that entails!!

Sadly though, one of my 3 dogs, my old poor sweet Lucy, has got serious problems with her feet, her claws in particular, which are giving her pain and making her lame. She goes in for surgery on Monday although it got extremely bad today so I'm going to see what they suggest tomorrow morning.  They are going to test some skin samples taken whilst there as they possibly suspect an auto-immune condition as the underlying cause.  So please keep your fingers crossed for my girlie.  She's around 13 years old now!

   
Today I'd like to share an art journal page created a week or so ago. This was just a bit of fun , indulging my penchant for all things science fiction!

Summary Process:
           
I created this page over some brickwork Stencil clean-off, some of which is showing through the white dots.

I applied Mod Podge Gloss circles randomly on the page to act as a resist before spraying with the DoCrafts sprays.  Once I had rubbed back the circle areas and the page had dried, I inked the edges with Jet Black Archival Ink.

I drew Marvin the martian (minus his space helmet) onto copier paper, painted over with white Gesso, and cut out. Once glued to the page I used Gelatos and a black watercolour pencil to add the colour and detail.  I then added his space helmet with white Gelato, using Silver DecoArt Dazzling Metallics paint for the collar part.

To finish, the writing was done free- hand using Molotow Paint Markers. The "MARVIN" was painted with the silver paint.
