Crossing Paths Project Directions
Paint over the page using multiple colors of chalk paint. This paint creates a surface perfect for mark making with just about any pen. Be careful not to paint over any details you wish to retain in the finished piece, like the portrait in the bottom right hand corner.
Make marks all over the surface using a pencil, artist pens, and crayons.
Color in and around the stamped images using the Big Brush pens.
Add a bit of paper collage material and the letter stickers to spell out "crossing paths."
Add additional design elements and the words "discover" and "destiny" using the stencils with chalk paint and craft sponges.
Make more marks over the surface using the pencil, pens, crayons and ink pads.
Splatter a bit of the chalk paint on the surface for a finishing touch.
