Diamond with a Flaw – AJ page

Hello everyone and happy Monday! Today I´m sharing yet another art journal page with you. This time created almost solely with watercolors. I have been in a mood for creating faces into my art journal for a while now and today, finally, I brought enough courage together to try one out. And I am joining this challenge over at STAMPlorations blog with my page too:

Here is what I created:

I have plenty of watercolor layers on this page that I built up bit by bit. I started with light colours, then gradually moved towards stronger ones. Then I doodled the face very freely with Posca pens onto the page and then went from there to add even stronger color shades to create all the details, like the hair, eyes, eyebrows an the lips.

For finishing details I´ve doodled with white and black Posca marker here and there. Everything else is done with watercolors. Even the stenciling (done with one of my stencils – Rag Rug – for STAMPlorations)!!! For a fun detail I wanted to add a bold quote that I found to fit the girls face – the wonky nose and eyes really reflects the quote and vice versa.

So this is my take for the STAMPlorations watercolor challenge in July. I love how this page turned out and I had a blast creating it.

Happy crafting,
xxx, Sanna
