Art Journal Online - Art Journaling by Artist Letha Richardson



~ Art Supplies used


Art Supplies:

Watercolor paints,
gesso,
stamps
StazOn ink pads
Distress ink pads
Micron fine line pen
colored sharpie markers

I started out with the watercolored background patchwork, then I applied a light coat of gesso over the top to soften the colors. Then I used stamps with Stazon and Distress ink to fill in some of the boxes.
Then I used a fine line Micron pen to doodle and journal in and around the boxes. Lastly I added a few colors (like the hearts) with colored Sharpie markers.
I chose to concentrate on the quilt idea, as I noticed that the page looked like a big quilt to me.
I liked the idea of mentioning what a quilt symbolizes.

Square in a square stamps
by: Letha Richardson

I have to admit, I used the simple way out, and the stamps are purchased ones. They are made by Hero Arts. The box says LL980 Retro Squares, set of 4. They are quite nice to tuck in here and there.
Thanks for your sweet comments!

I love your journal quilt. The colors are pleasing and relaxing, the little pictures offer interest and surprises to explore. Like a crazy quilt with little treasures to discover hidden throughout. Lovely!
