For some time now there's a small set of acrylic paint standing in my craft room, which I have once received as a gift. Originally I had wanted to use the paint for letterings but unfortunately that has never happened yet. Instead I recently played around with the in in my watercolor art journal.
To prepare the paper for the ink I first sprayed it with a bit of water. Then I simply let the paint drip onto the pages. In some spots I took it off again with some kitchen paper, which created interesting patterns here and there.
Das Ganze hat mir so gut gefallen, dass ich die Seite schrittweise weiterbearbeitet habe. Hier ein bisschen gewischt, da etwas geklebt, dort ein wenig gelettert. Abstrakte Seiten wie diese mache ich normalerweise nicht, aber es hat mir so viel Spaß gemacht, dass ich künftig sicher noch einmal darauf zurückkommen werde.
I had been so pleased with the outcome that I continued working on the spread little by little. I did some stencelling here, some gluing there and a bit of lettering in other spots. I typically don't do abstract pages like these but had so much fun doing this one that I'll sure do another one in the future.
