After I’d recently completed my 8-day series helping get through a block and a bout of lost mojo – I didn’t want to tackle a black and white/greyscale style art journal page because I’ve done them before in the past, many times. However, I kept being drawn back to the thought of creating a page where a face appears to be coming out of the shadows and background noise.
So – as having an artistic itch is impossible to ignore..here it is! Click the YouTube link below to watch my entire process from start to finish.
I thought I’d tackle an abstract style art journal page after my mojo came back (sort of)! I had the idea to combine the phrase with an abstract image I’d seen recently. Obviously I didn’t want to copy exactly…rather to interpret in my own way and incorporate the phrase somewhere in there.
The idea that I had in my head wouldn’t translate from my brain to my fingers, so I had to improvise and make do. It’s not one of my better pages, the paints wouldn’t work the way I wanted and the image never really came together the way I’d have liked. Still, art is a process – the thrill is in the doing – not the end product! To watch how I put this art journal page together – click the YouTube link below.
