Art Journal Face Illustration

Hi, everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, we challenge you with "ANYTHING GOES"! Yes! Let's have fun!

I created an art journal page with an ocean theme this week.

I was inspired by the colors of  new Simon Says Stamp Premium Dye Ink Pad and created this summer and ocean theme art journal page.

To start this project, I applied Distress Spray Stain and water mixture to create the background colors.  Use Layering Stencil and pigment ink to create the patterns on the background.

I drew a girl face and a whale, and colored them with Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain and Koi watercolor using Aqua Brushes. The anchor was stamped using Tim Holtz Stamp and embossed with Clearsnap Clear Embossing Powder.

Add more layers with Tim Holtz Rubs on, ColorBox stencil and Blending Tools. Some Tim Holtz metal embellishments were attached using Tombow glue.

Drop some Gesso and water mixture as the final touch. I hope you like this girl and the ocean theme on my art journal. I really enjoyed creating this project with all these fun tools and products.
