don't you just love rocks?. pretty stones. beach pebbles?.
As for me, it is only natural to use crushed volcanic rocks (pumice) on my journal pages. I'm a geologist after all :).
Recently, I played with Golden Pumice Gel over stencil and pan pastels. I wasn't too sure when smearing the gritty texture on my page however, after it dried I kind of liked it.
I didn't add any colors to the pumice gel as the pan pastel background was already too colorful. I love how the red diamond stencil graded into coarse pumice :). My page has become a nice scrubber!. LOL. Thick pumice gel is surprisingly quick to dry :).
I also stamped and added pieces of rice paper and fabric to the page. Drew circles with black india ink and some doodling to finish the pages off. The circles resemble the sun, and the pen nibs are tall buildings silhouette at sunset :). I just made that up, of course.
I'm liking pan pastel a lot, so easy to apply & mix colors on the page. Dry or with wet sponge. Best thing, you won't get your fingers too dirty. I hope you get the chance to play with them!. Happy Wednesday.
