Although it has been awhile since I shared any art journal photos, I have been fitting in as much time as I can to do more. It seems that the more I do, the more creative I feel. I like the feeling. I’ve realized that it is okay to go in bits and pieces. It’s okay to do a bit here and a bit there. I’ve done 4 of these pages in July. I’m on a roll.
This one has a background of torn tissue paper, that I covered with a layer of acrylic over tape that I pulled off.
In this one I challenged myself to do a layout without using any glued images at all. I’m proud of this, as it is outside my comfort level.
This one came together quickly. The background is oil pastel, which I discovered is hard to write over top of.
I did this one on a day where I was feeling down and less than.
The quote is “All we can do is be authentically ourselves.”
This is the quick page I did for mother’s day.
I did this one spur of the moment when I just had a few minutes. I like how I explored a bit with lettering.
Those above were all done in my small art journal. This last page I did on my big 12×12 scrapbook paper. I like sometimes to find art to go with the background. In this one I added journaling directly to the page, which I like. I will be trying that again.
