Art Journal Time! Finally!
When I was jumping back into my art and getting inspired by Youtube videos, I stumbled upon the idea of an art journal. I liked this idea. A lot! But I didn't want to go buy anything as I was unemployed at the time. I went through my room and found this huge normal journal I had bought from my local WalMart for a couple bucks.
Down side, it has normal, lined, journal pages. But I have tons of gesso now and tons of glue and recycled cardboard. So I decided to give it a go. Here are the first two pages I've completed. I have four more unfinished pages and as soon as they are complete they will be posted.
Second page ~
This page was done in chalk pastel, cheap student grade ones. I saw this picture on a background app and wanted to recreate it. Sorry for the glare, when I finished I sprayed a fixative on it. The quote is "Love is shown in your deeds, not your words. Love blooms when the world can see it, in your thoughts and actions." I hadn't worked with pastels a whole lot before this and really enjoyed the process of blending. It was nice and messy :)
Well that's it for now. My next post will be a project that I'm working on for my friend, which I'm finishing up this afternoon. :)
