Non journal52 pages


A few months ago I got a spiral bound art journal for non journal52 pages.

It feels hard to share these pages, the non 'perfect' ones. I wonder if others struggle with that too. At any rate things are learned every time we do a page.

I like the background on this page but somewhere it is too much. I think it is the black color, or maybe I should have stopped after the bear and not done the black or white dots.

This page I like more yet the butterfly is too stand out I think,mwhen my purpose was to showcase the words. The butterfly should be in blue. Acrylics, cutouts, stickers, black marker.
This one I like the background colors but the orange I wish was more muted, I should have gone over it in watered down gesso. Also I dislike the red background of the words. I think the background is watercolor pencil. Stamps with black ranger ink pad, Orange Stayz on ink pad, red glitter card stock, white pen, blue acrylic.

This page I like. I love the heart, I used torn up dictionary pages for the background of the heart. The flower stamps in the pages are smudged which is the only issue I have with this page. This is yellow gel stick, toned down with white gesso. Dictionary pages torn and glued in the shape of half a heart, ove red with red gel stick. Stamped in black ranger ink, colored with markers.

  1. The bear is perfect and so is the butterfly piece. The butterfly gives wings to the words. I absolutely love that. The authentic self is so amazing, seriously. I really like these.
    I’ve only left a comment here but in viewing the others I can see you took a few risks. Boy do I know about posting something and going…..oh I hope people don’t see this and think “what was she doing? she’s got other paintings that are good, then there’s this one.” Even if they thought negatively about a painting its their thought, not my reality.
    I always look forward to your art journal pieces. They inspire me. I used to do it a lot more and just said the other day I should get back in it. Who knows……..
