Art Journal – Houses or Homes

I have a thing about houses

I journal in an A4 pad and struggle with words, well I think that I have made a breakthrough with that. I am practising my lettering, I think that because I am dyslexic (boy that was hard to spell, so grateful for spell check) I developed bad writing, as a way to hide spelling errors. This is a quick description of how I made the page. The stamps are old ones from Stampendous.

Quick coat of black gesso (I don’t always use gesso depends on the paint that I am going to use)
I used a brick stencil and some Sludge Paste

What is Sludge Paste I here you ask. Well when you stencil with different colours of paste and get them mixed put them all in an empty pop and use it when you are going to add colour over the top.

I have painted my sludge paste with Cosmic Shimmer Kaleidoscope paint

The Kaleidoscope paint includes grit to add even more texture.

While I was doing the page I was listening to an interview with Jon Kabat-Zin. The phrase really struck me.
the other page that I created at the same time.

I think that I like houses because I wonder what the lives inside them is like and the wonder of people.

Thank you for stopping in and please if you have time and live in the North East of Scotland could you please fill in my survey. Thank you
