My art journal pages are messy, intense, emotional, free and definitely not pretty but they are reflection of life the way it is. This page spread is a very spontanious creation as my room where I keep art supplies is being decorated at the moment and I am simply not able to find anything so had to create from what I found :)
The page started with layer of Dina Wakley white gesso plus some scraps of paper. Then I used two Dina Wakley paints to create the colour part. I used Balckberry Violet and Lapis.To achive sort of ageing effect I spread paint with the old credit card.
The collage part is the technique I invented a while ago and call "left over collage" - that means that the paper is left after the image is cut out can be used as well- you can see that here as an empty person shape. Even if the image is not full you can add the rest like here by drawing the missing part.
I added some yellow accents by using Color Wash spray in Butterscotch (dropping from the bottle) and black from the Archival Ink range (Jet Black).
Montana acrylic paint pen in white to make some scribbles, that have to say I quite liked;)
Art Journaling is a free and emotional expression so I hope you like this a little bit crazy lady looking for her soul, that happens to be on the next page...
Wishing you a Happy Art Journaling!
