Round Robin Art Journal

Hi Everybody,
I belong to a Round Robin Art Journal group of local artists . . . we meet once a month and trade art journals to work on and bring back the following month . . . here are a couple of pages I did for one of the members . . .
The first one is a page with my favorite childhood picture . . . the background is acrylic paint scraped on with a palette knife . . . stamps are  stamped with  pigment ink and heat embossed with  embossing powder . . . I used punchinella aka sequin waste and used acrylic paint to scrape over it with a palette knife . . . stickers and collage images were added and covered with dimensional glue like Diamond Glaze for added emphasis . . . stamps are from Judikins and Sunday International

The second one is a black and white transparency that was given to me from one of our members . . . I used Sharpie Permanent Markers on the back of the transparency and sprayed it with Denatured alcohol and let it drip unti I was pleased with the result . . . then I laid it down to dry . . . the pictures were amateurish Photoshopped (I really know very little about Photoshop) to get it as black and white as I could and whited out the background . . . the background was painted with Sharpie markers  scribbled in a paint palette spritzed with denatured alcohol and applied to the background with a brush . . .
Have fun!
