Here's a journal spread I did using some fish postage stamps I'd been hoarding for awhile. First I used craft acrylics to paint the background in stripes of bright blue, turquoise and orange, Threw the orange in as a try at using a color I never make art with. Next I drew some swirls across the page with a watercolor colored pencil and softened it with some water and a brush. Then I started gluing stuff down - postage stamps, fish I cut out of pictures, a few gold scrap fish I painted with acrylic, a ticket I'd stamped a fish on, and a piece of ledger paper I'd printed the words "Something fishy" on. Then I stippled over it with dark blue ink to blend it all a bit. Last thing I did was stamp a fish postoid style stamp a few times in white pigment ink.
I was glad to put those old postage stamps to use. I really like creating with postage stamps. And shopping for them online. So many cool images out there.
Thanks for taking a look!
I hope you all have a creative week!
