I hope you are all doing well!
I was inspired by amazing Creative Carte Blanche to play with bleeding tissue paper technique, which is new to me. Since I couldn't find that paper here in Croatia, I tried to use my crepe papers instead. I was so happy with the result and here's the art journal page I created using the 'bleeding tissue paper' technique.
I did this page pretty quick, probably in an hour or so. I started with the background using my crepe paper in some vibrant colours, a cup of water and a watercolour flat brush.
When my background was completely dry I started to draw those primitive characters using my Stabilo all pencil in black. I also used my Faber Castell pitt pen (S) in black to draw my letters.
I outlined my drawings and my letters and I applied my watercolours outside those lines. That awesome crepe paper background is visible only inside the outlined images.
I also used my fluorescent oil pastels, my Chinese markers, my Stabilo woody pencils, some bits I created using Dylusions inks, my small heart punch and a Tim's heart thinlits die.
I had a lot of fun creating this!
