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.
Hey there! Today I've got some more art journal pages from 2019 to share with you! This first page features a large monoprint I did on deli paper and then collaged into my art journal. After collaging it, I used a Stabilo pencil to clean up some of the features of the portrait.
The flowers in the background were drawn with a white grease pencil.
In the photo above you can see one of the many reasons that I love working in a junque journal! I love it when bits and pieces of the junque peek through the artwork. It adds so much complexity and interest to the final spread!
Question: What do you do with all the tags you make? Answer: I use them! You can see a big stamped tag and a little stamped tag in this spread.
I like to test out new art supplies in my art journal. As you can see from the photo above, I was comparing the different tip sizes of the white gelly roll pen. As a side note: I don't see a lot of differences between 05 and 08, but 10 is nice and fat.
This is another "lace" or hand cut page.
Here is the back of that page:
Thanks for stopping by!
