It’s been awhile since I shared pages from my art journal, so I thought I would start the week with a few!
This one uses some scraps of CitraSolv paper on a stenciled background of brown on black. I really like this quote from Albert Einstein.
This is a page describing the woes of housework, and all the complexities and pressures of an overfull schedule. The page started off by blotting the ink off of a stencil that I had used spray ink on. Then I added doodles to try out my new Posca paint pens (they are pretty awesome by the way!). Then later, I decided the page fit the mood of what was on my mind. I often work on pages in stages like this, they tend to evolve over time. This is also an example of a page that is nothing spectacular, but does the job of recording my life. More than likely, this page will do more evolving over time. I might even gesso over the words and write new ones!
Finally, I have included a page that was inspired by Bloknote, whose whimsical style I was introduced to on Lifebook 2014. What do you think of lips in the place of a chin? So many things you can do with faces! The writing was pretty fun too. It goes every which way, and a reader would be hard pressed to follow it. But that’s okay…an art journal is more about doing the writing than anyone else being able to read it!
