31 Products Challenge - Days 6 and 7

Hi Everyone! I have a couple more pages to share for the 31 Products Challenge.

My page for Day 6 features Liquitex Glass Bead Gel. I used drips of watered down red paint to highlight the fabulous texture.

And for Day 7, I've used vintage book pages to make a collage, then used a wet paintbrush to create splatters off a charcoal stick. I also used the charcoal stick to outline the words on a piece of vintage paper from an old book belonging to my engineer hubby. I activated the charcoal with a wet paintbrush. I've stencilled on some numbers with black paint and a PaperArtsy stencil. I've always preferred to solve mathematical problems against writing essays, so I'm entering this page for the Art Journal Journey Creature Comforts Challenge.

Hope you've all had a great weekend,
thanks for visiting,
Alison xox


  1. Both pages are wonderful Alison, looks like you are having fun. Hugs, Valerie

  2. Loving both pages Alison! I do have bead gel on my wish list but keep hesitating to buy it cuz i don't know how much I'd be using it. Looks like a fun texture though. Thanks for joining AJJ again!

  3. I've heard of that glass bead gel, and the texture it creates is amazing. I have NOT heard of a charcoal stick, but I like how you used it in your collage.

    As much as I love to write (you can tell by visiting my blog), I also LOVE math and numbers. This truly spoke to me, and I am so, so glad you shared it with us at Art Journal Journey.

  4. Both fabulous pages Alison love the charcoal stick effect on the 2nd one

  7. he glass bead gel texture is amazing in the first one - such a fab and artsy make and I adore the second one - it is gorgous with the black and white and the touch of light blue!
    Thank you for supporting the October theme at Art Journal Journey! Have a great new week!
    Hugs, Susi
