art journal page {documented life project}

this week's challenge at Art to the 5th was to use a mask. their prompt, "mask" arade.......

i, of course was totally down with that. i love masks and stencils. these pics are from my folder that tries to hold the majority of the masks and stencils that i have.

as you can see....i don't clean any of them. and i will warn you....sometimes this does present a problem especially if i am using the Dylusion's inks as those are water based and will reactivate; but, sometimes that is part of the process.

these pages were started with paint and ink, and gold already on the pages and i started building up from there.

a little help from my masks and stencils;....and the use of my stabilo pencils. i used my green and black.

this page is a bit of a hot mess.....but, i do love the runs and drips and the mix of it all. sometimes it is easier to start on a page that already has something on it; and if it is a hot mess....that is when a mask can be a huge help- in that you can pick out a favorite spot and then, paint over the page to calm it down and pull the page together- which was exactly what i did with that pink/ red to pull this page together.

again- i loved this challenge. 
happy monday!
