I had originally intended to use some photos of a cemetery in a bushland setting in Victoria. I took these photos about 6 years ago and I couldn't find them on my old hard drive. So I had to come up with something different~!
I found the skull image online and coloured
it with prismacolour pencils.Tha background id stenciled and stamped.
The texture paste is homemade with black gesso,bi-carb,cornflour and
some gold glitter. The stamping is done with versafine Ink.
second page had already been done with a layer of gesso so I used some
homemade spray ink and some dylusions ink and some fabric spray ink for
colour to tie in with the previous page. Once again I added some
stamping and texturising with an old make up sponge. The quote I printed
out from the internet.
The girl from the book was just
visible so I used an 'ALL' pencil to make her slightly more prominent.
For those who don't know this journal is a re-purposed picture book
about Hiroshima. I didn't want to obliterate the girl so she is now part
of this spread.
