If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here. All of the previous posts can be found archived here. There is a flickr group for sharing right here. Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day! No need to finish anything or even like it. If you've done some art journaling this week and you've blogged about it, or put it on flickr, please leave a link in the linky list at the end of this post. Thanks!
Today I've got some daily art journal pages to share. These are from the end of December 2013 and the beginning of January 2014. Faces continue to be the biggest trend in my journal -- and lots and lots of journaling, of course!
I continue my pursuit of faces that are interesting rather than pretty. This is a quick sketch I did with a marker and shaded with some blue and white paint.
I glued a couple of the skins that didn't work out into my art journal. To my surprise, even though they looked cloudy on the page protector, once I glued them down, they turned mostly clear! Pretty cool!
People always ask me what I use my gelli prints and deli paper for -- well, you can see them right here in the colorful circles on this page!
Another face that is definitely not pretty. And another skin! Can you see it in the face?
And another skin here on the other side. Again, it was cloudy on the page protector, but it looks clear now!
I love mixing lots of materials together -- here you've got painted and stenciled newspaper, washi tape, scrapbook paper, and some doodled copy paper.
This is an old face that I painted back in the summer of 2012. One of the things that I love about working in my junque journal is that I get to incorporate all of these old random bits of art! So much better having it in my journal than sitting in a drawer somewhere, you know?
I can't walk away from the white Sharpie. Love that thing!
I love the look of sgraffito. Been using it a lot these days.
The bats are a thermofax print I made for this blog post back in April 2013.
Here is this week's linky list:
