journal challenge days 56 & 57
do you ever find yourself in an art journal rut? i do ALL THE TIME!!! whenever i am uninspired, i revert back to what feels the most comfortable. i still like those pages but… every once in a while inspiration does strike and i step out of the box. the first page i am going to share today is what i would consider my “comfort zone”. watercolors, followed by spray inks, brayer and acrylic paint, collage, stitching and a painted design. i guess this is what i call my “go to page”.
the second page though is a major divergence from the norm. i only used collage. and i used all of my oops papers. if you have been art journaling at all, you know exactly what i mean. you leave papers on your art table and somehow they end up with random spray or paint on them. in my case, i use wax paper in between the pages that are still semi-wet. some of the paint inevitably ends on the wax paper. or i use the wax paper as my painting palette. these are some of my favorite papers to collage with. this page started with the magazine picture that says “be well” and just took off from there.
