Into the art journal. i had some time recently to create some pages in my art journal. i should say this art journal for i think i have 5 or 6 going at once. it's amazing how this takes the stress out of me. Here are a few pages i created, taking strolls out of my comfort zone.
This page is quite unusual for me. I was trying on a different style to see what it was like. I admit it was kind of scary to let go and a wee bit out of my comfort zone. The colors are a bit darker than usual but still colorful. I think it's still me in a different way. There are things i really like and things i am not sure if i would do again. I think though it's important to stretch ourselves to see what happens. I think the sentiment really captures that feeling.
Lots of words covered up with a light gesso wash. I highlighted some random words that really make no sense together but just stood out to me. I really like the color combination on this page and must remember to use it again. Some hand carved stamps adorn this page as well as some doodles.
This page began as doodled hearts. I added the words underneath and started layering in colors using waterproof pens. I sprayed some Maya mists on top and added some splatters. This is a different kind of art journal page for me, one that ties my doodling and color together. I really enjoyed it and see myself creating more like this.
