valentine journal spread

I was playing around with ink sprays, and texture magic. I am running low on that stuff so I decided to make my own. with the baby powder…….Its like a cross between spackle and mud… I must have had been holding my tongue wrong , because it s working more like quick sand then a medium , and  When it finally dries  . It cracks and falls off what a mess. I think I’ll just buy it instead… LOL… 50 percent off  coupons are needed… well I scraped it off and started it over again. so the  dimension isn’t quite what I wanted on the cupid angel. but shes good  for now until I get more texture…

But I came up with make a wish on my own.. Theres so many videos and art groups out there its WONDERFUL, that so many artist share there ideas and techniques. well as always I kind of do some of this and some of my own things…. Used watercolors in a spray bottle with a little water mixed in. and water color brushes,Bic marker, Zig  millennium pen for fine line detail….and WHITE OUT PEN… YES I KNOW !!! really I love the effects of the white out pens…….. shows up a lot really makes things pop out at you.
