It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about creating something beginning with the letter N. Let's get inspired by products, color, techniques or brands beginning with N.
First I started to apply a coat of Gesso since it's perfect to work on with water-based inks, like Distress. I then made with washi tape (which didn't stick so well to the gesso) strokes to color them in. The ink leaked under the tape. But actually it gave a pretty nice effect. Then I went with a black watercolor pencil but that was to intense and not I wanted. And because of the Gesso I could fix this easily. Another effect of the gesso, you can also make beautiful drip stains.
Below the time-lapse video from beginning to end of this art journal spread. UPDATE: I've uploaded the video again, something went wrong with the music.
