Inspired by Jean

I usually try and drop in on Jeans streams if I'm not out at netball on a Monday, but for whatever reason, last night it wouldn't load up and let me in. But when I saw her journal pages on FB today I just had to go and watch the recordings which you can find here and here to find out what she did.

So basically I painted the journal page in rainbow stripes using Decoart chalky paints, added the image from a magazine, whilst waiting for it to dry, painted the page with chalky black, then used a baby wipe through a couple of stencils to wipe back and reveal the colours underneath. Once dry I outlined some of the images with a white sharpie to define them and make them pop.

All paints are from the DecoArt range.

By using a gel medium, this kind of makes the image transparent and you can see the colours of paint through it.

I saw a bit of her stream but before she started to create her page - which was fab - and I love how you've been inspired by it.

I've never watched anyone stream ....must rectify that! I did see Jean's page on FB and love how you've run with the technique here. Beautiful effect!
