Smudgefest 2014 Day 1 & QTR #35


It is Day 1 for Smudgefest and the challenge for today is:
Mixed Media Monday -
You must use at least 3 different kinds of mediums in your project
at least 1 Smeared Ink image to be entered into the grand prize drawing

I have an art journal page for today's entry.
I am also going to enter this page at Quoth The Raven, Nevermore.

As you probably guess, this page uses the Smeared Ink stamp set Quoth the Raven (Feb 2013).
I was also inspired by an Art Journal Everyday tutorial from the wonderful Julia Vasquez.  The technique is #27 Making Marks
Once my marks were finished, it reminded me of a wall.
So I wrote some quotes from The Cask of Amontillado by Edgar Allan Poe.

Filling in the Deets

Mediums Used:
Black Gesso
White Gesso
Blendabilities (alcohol markers)
Distress Inks - Holtz

Quoth the Raven (Feb 2013) a Smeared Ink Rubber Club Past Offerings
