Hi everyone! Cindy here, sharing my second project using the Jane Davenport Artomology Collection. After doing the underwater cover page I was really excited to experiment with a similarly themed weekly layout.
I decided to do a basic vertical weekly layout, using a technique my friend Michelle Baxter (@quirkyheart on Instagram) loves to use – masking off the days and then inking. I lay down masking tape to keep the days clean (ish – working with ink is rarely neat!) and then used the same technique I used yesterday to spread the Squid Ink Hybrid Inkpads all over the page.
When I was done, I used some of the Jane Davenport clear stamps to create bubbles, again using the Squid Ink Hybrid Inkpads. Doing this BEFORE I removed the masking tape helped create the illusion of the bubbles floating behind the daily boxes.
I added detail with the Smooth Markers, a felt tipped pen and a brush pen. I also decided to add some fun with some of the Washi Mermaid images.
Finally, I decided to add some of the silver Squid Ink using a tiny paintbrush as an accent to brighten the whole thing up. This also led to a little sloppiness, but I take that as a reminder that LIFE is sloppy! All that is left is to add in your plans!
