Be the Light Art Journal Spread

This is an art journal spread that I wanted to share today. It is truly a mixed media piece. I started with a page that I already had painted with Deco Art Media Gesso and let dry for a while. (A couple of days at least, I like to work in steps and will add Deco Art Media Gesso or base paint to the pages and let them dry for a while and them come back to them later). I then picked three colors of Aqua Marker that complemented each other and just added color to the page and than some water to let the run and bleed into each other. 

After I let that layer dry for a while I went back and removed even more of the Aqua Marker color from the page so that I would just have a hint of the colors on the page. I took some Deco Art Media Fluid Acrylic Paint in colors that Complement the original colors and painted circles  on one side of the spread and a border of triangles on the other side.

I then sketched in the words "Be The Light" with a pencil and went over it with the Aqua Marker and they were really too light for the job so I used Prismacolor Colored Pencils to darken the letters and widen some of the strokes. 

To finish it off I added a few highlights with a PITT Artist Pen - White Large Bullet Nib .
