I love looking at art journal pages.
But, I STRUGGLE with creating my own.
I go through phases of working on them,
(I have 4 art journals of different sizes)
then I won't open them up for 2 months.
Part of the problem, is wanting to create
something perfect and part of the problem
is looking at that blank page.
One solution has been to cover up that
blank page with left over paint from other projects.
Sometimes I will print on deli paper with my
gelli plate and I will glue that down.
The perfection problem, I am still working on.
Some examples of pages that have
been "primed" with left over paint
and ghost prints of stencils I'ved used elsewhere.
Here is my most recent completed page.
I really like using magazine collage on my journal pages.
The flower was a handmade stencil of mine and
the background was gelli printed deli paper.
I don't actually write a lot in mine but I
try to think of or find an appropriate
saying or word that reflects what I am feeling.
Thanks for stopping by!!
