Day 30

Hi Everyone
Hope that you are all ok. Over here in the UK I read today that we are on our 30th day of the current lockdown which prompted me to record that in my art journal. 

This had been a part finished page in my Dylusions A5 journal for at least a couple of years but leaving just the stamped houses I totally changed the colours of the background with acrylics paints and just kept reaching for different stencils and adding to the background using several stencil techniques along with a mixture of mediums which included acrylic paints, Decoart paint misters, Dina Wakley gloss sprays and archival ink. The female image I cut from a magazine and added to the page. 
Stencils used are mostly That's Crafty Stencils but I have used AALL & Create as well. 
I seem to be getting an urge to create in my art journal prompted by the current coronavirus situation across the world I suppose because it it fuelling so many different emotions for us all for many different reasons. 
Stay safe everyone we will get through this

  1. That's such a powerful page - the dark ominous windows, the bright colours and light outside - almost too bright compared with the interiors - and the figure curled in the foetal position for protection - it's amazing.

  2. This is fabulous Amanda, so striking and as Alson says, very powerful. It's all starting to hit home now isn't it. Take care, Sue xx
