“Time is very slow for those who wait. Very fast for those who are scared. Very long for those who are lament. Very short for those who celebrate.But for those who love,time is eternal”
– William Shakespeare
Week 10 of my 52 week challenge. So at this point I am kinda getting bored with the few supplies I have. None the less, I thought for this weeks spread I would try something different; layering with acrylic paint. I started by laying down some old book pages. As I started layering my paints, I thought ‘You won’t be able able to see these pages!’ but they do actually peek through in places. As for the paints, I started by covering both pages with white, allowing it to dry and then going over it with purple. By adding a decent amount of water to the acrylic, I was able to lay pieces of cling wrap over them while wet giving the paint visual texture.
I then continued to layer it up. I added some turquoise to the mix and using a sponge and a couple of stencils I added more colour. Then using black acrylic and a business card, I added lines across both pages, dragging the card in places for a different effect. To finish, I added a few pictures I found in a magazine and some washi tape.
