I have been asked a few times how I create the pages in my workbook. So I have photographed this one as it progressed to try and show the sort of things I do and the materials I use. My pages either start from photos (I use a pogo printer on my hols) or as in this case a collection of items. So here goes...
The book I use is a 10 by 8 inch journal with cream lined paper. The paper isn't anything special but does with stand all the materials I use.
This page started with a collection of items I found on the beach. I started (on the beach) with a simple pencil drawing.
I then broke up the background by printing with Acrylic paint and bubble wrap. The paint I use is by Docraft that I get from Boyes. It is inexpensive but I like it as it give a matt finish.
Once dry, I then fill in a background colour with Koh-i-noor water colours. ( this was done back at the tent)
To add tone I like to use a handwriting pen that is water soluble. I outline / add detail / add shading / etc.
This is then softened with water.
As a lot of the area is now colour I use white acrylic to bring back the high lights.
To add detail I use Aqua markers. I like these as you have the option of leaving the detail or blending the colours.
I then work back into the page with my hand writing pen, this time not blending with water.
Finally comes the text and stamps.
I hope you have found this process interesting and if it has inspired you to get out your book and make a start then I am pleased I could help.
