I really am taking part in “In the Sun” over at http://artjournaling.ning.com. Yesterday I received some of what I had been waiting for, so I started.
I’d been saving this Victoria’s Secret tissue paper for a worthy project. On the left page, I used glossy gel medium, on the right I used fluid gel medium. Further, there are stars printed on the shiny side of the tissue, along with “VS”. I wanted to see if there would be a difference if I applied the shiny vs. the unprinted side directly to the medium, so I tore each piece in half. The top of each page has the unprinted side next to the gel, the bottom has the shiny side next to the gel. I think the stars show better when the gel is on the shiny side.
I then used black ink (the $1.99 stuff from Michael’s) with the Le Cirque rubber stamps by Hampton Arts for Graphic 45. I just decided to see what would happen. When I journal this page, I will use white gel pen.
