Ghost Journaling for Lack of a Better Description
Thai picture doesn't really show you what really happened, but I am not feeling the best this weekend, so I am not going to try to take anymore.
In short, first I saw this technique when Paula Phillips showed us on her UStream last week and I flipped out.
She painted the page with cheapie black craft paint. Once it was dry, she took stencils and sprayed a green color wash ink on the page. You couldn't really see the stencils but that is OK. After that was dry, she took a circle stencil and a spouncer and spounced gesso on the page in circles, and the inks showed thru the gesso. It is really a very cool technique. Looks like ghost journaling.
Please go here and watch Paula's recorded UStream, http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/10843297
It is the coolest thing I have ever seen, and I know you will love it.
Oh yea, if ya don't know what a spouncer is, it is a sponge on a stick used for stenciling. Very cool tool. Spounce, spounce, spounce.
One more thing, if you are on twitter, look me up as journalchic. I am following a bunch of great art journalers. We have quite a time, at times.
