Although...the first two pages are covered with thick layers of paper and paint so no sign of beautiful drawings so far...
I started this art journal with a collage, a spread! I don't know how it happened but it did..and I loved it.
Last week I wrote the text on the page.
All images and the complete background are magazine cut outs. The quote and doodling are done with Sharpies.
The second page was also doing nothing for a few days...waiting for the right quote.
I sponged acrylic paint through a Crafters Workshop template to create the wall. The white corner on the right was done with modeling paste, although it didn't quite turn out the way I planned.
(Inspired by Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday, here )
The poppies are paper napkins, glued down with Mod Podge.
The label on the right, with the date on it, is also inspired by Donna Downey.
I tried to paint the text with acrylic paint, watered down to make it more fluid. Unfortunately I'm left handed and it is hard to make a fluid handwriting that way with a paintbrush...maybe next time I should try writing backwards...
