Art Journal Collage Page - May 21st, 2009
(click any of the images to enlarge)
I did this page really quickly this morning - in about an hour or so. Interesting when things just come together in a flow, no struggle, no doubt.
I grabbed a bunch of scraps from my pile of painted papers in turquoise and orange. I glued them down on the page with Golden Matte Gel Medium. I filled in the blank spaces with acrylic paints in gold (Lumiere), bronze Lumiere), Azul blue and Laguna Blue (Craft store stuff), watered down, dry brushed, brushed through sequin waste, wiped with paper towel, etc... I added the bird with a stencil and orange craft store paint on a make-up sponge mixed with the Lumiere bronze. The details and the quote were added last with a ultra-fine tipped white Elmer's Painters marker and black Indian Ink and a fountain pen.
I have been really fearless when it comes to playing in my art journal these days. I have pretty much left that pesky inner critic out of it completely somehow. It is pretty cool what comes out of me when I don't worry at all about the end results.
Now if only I could apply this to the rest of my life !!!! ;)
Happy Thursday ! Go be fearless !
