So what is the urban landscape of a concrete jungle? It’s the city in rough translation. Some of us loves it, some of us hates it, but let’s admit it, that’s the crosspoint of the roads where no doubt we can find all our needs. So here is my vision in my art journal page over cities (no specific, you may choose):
So as usual I was beginning to work up my scrap hills, so the first step was a collage, blended with gesso.
Next I smudged a bit with inka gold, just because I wanted to have some metal shine, but no certain shape or pattern. I used Ronda’s city stencil to add the lines of the city underneath with molding paste and above the shadows of the city with graphite texture paste. I wanted to have some shade so I added some dark tint of Bristle by the sides. Then To colorize I used Lindy’s stamp gang sprays (bachelor button blue and orange creamsicle). I stamped with archival ink to add some more texture (graffiti stamp).
Here is a close up of my graffiti and the shadows of the city.
I found a postcard of a metropolitan, pretty faded, who knows what it was going through, but definitely urbanized in all means by the postal services. I added some metal embellishments (they come from my sunday market findings).
And finally my title stamping with black archival ink:
Hope you won’t get lost in a concrete jungle, and you will find some time to enjoy the urban landscape (as it has sort of a beauty) in the running life.
I am sharing my spread with Journal 52 prompt in the city.
