This journal page was produced in response to the Explore Your Creativity Challenge 6 over on Junk Journal Junkies and Mindful Art. The technique to be used was the style of Klimt; the colour was to be predominantly gold and the product to be included was texture paste. It's not my favourite piece, but I am determined to share all my art this year, whether I love it or not! My influence for this piece was Klimt's Portrait of Adele Bloch Bauer.
I worked on a piece of mixed media card (18.5cm x 19.5cm). Having found a magazine image that I wanted to collage onto the page, I drew round it lightly in pencil so as to leave that area of the page clear of texture paste. I dragged Pebeo High Density Modelling Paste through four different stencils (from top left going clockwise: the Tim Holtz mini stencil Ringer/THMS056, the large layering stencil Dot Fade/THS006, the Wired stencil by That Special Touch and along the bottom a stencil by That Special Touch which must have been discontinued as I can no longer find it online).
Once dry, I painted the background with Pebeo Dyna Studio Iridescent paints in Gold (352) and Precious Gold (350).
