I've been really busy designing projects and teaching classes but am trying to keep up with the art journaling challenge of playing at least ten minutes a day in my journal. These are the results of the past week.
On this page I decided to just cut squares and rectangles of lots of coordinated scraps from other projects. I glued them randomly (yet in a grid) to the page with gel medium.
To unify the patterns and colors, I added a thin wash of gesso - one of my favorite ways to tone down colors or unify a page.
I wasn't sure what to do next, but my husband attended a photography convention last weekend and brought alot of giveaway literature home. He especially thought I'd like this darling photo of a baby - and I did! I looked at it a few days on my desk and then thought it would be a great addition to the colors and feel of this page. I tore it and glued it to the bottom of the page and then cut up and adhered a quote I had saved.
The page still needed more, so I used my new Pilot Permaball pen to outline each section and to draw scallops around the perimeter. Done! I'm liking it...
