Art journal May 9 -simple!

A very simple journal page for may 9th. I took a photo printed on brochure paper of Steven and I and transfered it directly to a blank journal page. The photo is from our recent weekend at Cedar Key we just returned from -you can see the photo for real in the post below this one. Here in my journal, the photo image is reversed because I did not flip it when printing it. This is a gel medium transfer and it worked well. After I did the transfer, while the gel medium was still wet, I painted azure blue Dye-Na-Flow paint with a foam brush around the rest of the blank page spread. Then I sprayed Turquoise Perfect Pearls mist all around. I like the iridescent sheen of these mists and how everything reacted with the drying gel medium.

It is not finished, but that's okay! I only played around for 15 or 20 minutes and it felt good. More tomorrow! I hope you all are doing well and keeping your hand in creativity. I have also caught up with my daily blipfoto journal entries - phew! It is fun to go away, but work to come back ; ^  )
