Week 29 finds me once again in a hotel room, this time in Salt Lake City. Unlike previous pages created while out of town I have little to no supplies available since most of them have been shipped in and are at the convention center. That dearth forced me into figuring out what I could do with the little I have here in the room: stencils, 3 jars of Finnabair’s Art Alchemy Sparks Paint, PITT Pens, and some Mini Ink Blending Tools.
Since I’m deep in work mode and have a metric boatload of things to do, I started a list and then it occurred to me that could be Week 29’s prompt. Bullet Journaling is huge right now and a lot of that is list making. If it’s good enough for a Bujo, it’ll fabulous for my AJA page.
So your Week 29 prompt: feature a list or lists on your page.
Mine is pretty spare given that I have little to nothing to work with. Don’t feel as though yours needs to be.
Stencils are part of what I brought in my suitcases and have in the room, along with those three bottles of paint. This one is our new 6″ x 9″ style named Floral Stack.
I’m using a large zip top freezer bag as a kind of nonstick surface and have placed the stencil on my watercolor paper. The three bottles of paint I have are all the new Art Alchemy Sparks; Butterfly Spells, Fairy Wings, and Mermaid Sparkle. That’s a little Fairy Sparkle loaded on just the edge of a Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tool. Once I have the paint on the foam I mushed it around on the plastic bag to spread the paint on the foam.
You can see I applied the green Fairy Wings to the stem and the base of each of the flowers. Once it was dry I loaded a tiny amount of Butterfly Spells on the opposite side of the Mini Ink Blending Tool, smooshed it around on the plastic bag to spread the color out, then applied it to the flower petals parts of the stencil.
Color applied and dry, so now it’s time for a little pen work…
Finished the pen work around the petals and decided to add a sketchy border too. I like it.
And here’s a part of my to do list for the next few days. It’s never boring in my world!
