April 25
Art Challenge:  Inks
Journal Prompt:  Before the Ink is Dry

We will be trying this during our next meetings.

This week our featured artist is: Dyan Reaveley!

Guest artist on the Documented Life Project

I love the girls at art to the 5th and was really stoked when they chose my Dylusions journal as their chosen book to work in this year. And I was only too happy to do a spot as guest artist.

Of course me being me, forgot it would be right in the middle of a tour, so here I am last minute trying to upload and blog the project.

I imagine the poor girlies are having kittens as to wether I will make the deadline or not. at this time they will all be tucked up in their beds so this will be a nice surprise for them when they wake lol.

The theme for April is exploring inks and paints!!! What better subject could there be for me ?

The prompt for this challenge is "before the ink is dry"


Heres a quick run-through of what I came up with

Start by spritzing your journal page with water

Unscrew the lid of the Dylusion inks and using the straw as a pen, draw circles onto the wet page.

Spritz water directly onto the ink causing it to wick out.

Add more circles in different colours, each time spritzing from above. I used three, Tangerine Dream, Bubblegum Pink and Cherry Pie.

When you have finished adding colours blot up the excess with another journal page.

Place a large stencil onto the page and spritz over with water. This reactivates the ink.

Remove the stencil and blot with kitchen roll to remove the reactivated ink.

Take the coordinating colours of Dylusions paint and apply through stencils with a mini blending tool.

Take a Dylusions silhouette stencil and place the mask part onto the page. Apply black paint over and around the mask.

Take the large heart mask and repeat the process, continue until the page is covered.

Outline all the shapes with a black and then a white pen.

Add a frame around the edges using the Dylusions journal block.

Place a large stencil over the page and outline with the white pen

Doodle in some of the shapes

Use the journal block to create lines in the heart shapes and write in a quote.

Voila !!
