Goodbye 2019....

Goodbye Kisses
Last Art Journal Project for 2019


Use a large piece of slightly damp car sponge for this background, have a palette of Dark Blue/Navy, Titanium White, Dark Violet/ Dark Pink
 Sponge darker colours onto your journal first, blending as you go, add the white sponged highlights last.


Pencil in your horizon line, then using a filbert brush paint in your moonlit water, using cool blues of your choice, add navy or (Paynes Grey) shadow strokes and Titanium White highlight strokes.
 Use a circle stencil for the moon, lightly sponge it in with white Gesso.
Use a damp fan brush dipped in Titanium white and speckle the sky, then use a damp toothbrush dipped in the white and flicked for finer speckles. 
 Choose a silhouette design, print it out then cut around the shape, lay paper shape on journal, trace around it with pencil. Use a small paintbush loaded with Black acrylic paint and fill in shape.


Along the horizon line paint in black land and treeline. Stencil in your tree branches and small birds in the sky. Use a floral stencil for girls headdress, ( I have used a Donna Downey Artist Gang stencil) sponge in with Gesso, add yellow and orange paint to flower centers.
 Add other white branch and flourish stencils.
Use a white pen to outline the flowers and birds, draw in freehand extra tendrils and leaves if desired to add to the design.


I have chosen to add a music note stencil to this piece in the sky, you decide how much or little detail to add!
Enjoy creating and making this project your own
