We Will NOT Surrender

I often let pieces evolve as I make them, having no idea what the finished piece will be and just seeing what jumps out. This journal spread was made this way. My only intention was to test out some new spray inks I made by diluting acrylic ink with water in cheap spray bottles from the dollar store. Making your own inks this way is much, much cheaper than buying the ready made sprays and has the big advantage of being permanent when dry and not reactivating with other layers like the Dylusions inks. I also wanted to try out a new stencil and my Inktense blocks.

This piece evolved into a response to the recent Sydney hostage situation.

Here are some close ups:
