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. 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, use the hashtag #artjournaleveryday so that we can all take a peek. Even if you're not on social media, you can see everything (from twitter, pinterest, instagram, and facebook) that uses that hashtag here.
Today I'm sharing some pages from the beginning of February. Each of these pages is multi-colored (even the one with the black background), filled with journaling, and features a large focal image. Let me know if you see any other similarities! Sometimes other people see our work more clearly than we do.
The graphic text on this page was stamped with my Shadowed Alphabet Art Foamies and then painted in.
This is a flower that I had stamped onto a transparency and then painted behind. It was a creative experiment and when I was done, I threw it in my "art parts" bin. I was delighted to integrate it into this page.
As I've mentioned before, my pages evolve over time. The girl's face was a stenciled tag that was bound into the book. At a later date, I painted black all around the page. At some point, I added the long hair and the leaves. And still later yet, I added the large text over the figure. The small tag(s) were a later addition after that, along with the patterning in her body.
Thanks for stopping by!
