Happy Thursday everyone!
I hope that you are all having a good week and finding some time to create and play.
Isn't it sad that as we grow up, we sort of forget how to PLAY?
I wanted to share a couple more of the pages from my art journal that I started blogging about HERE. These are the next two pages in that journal.
All of the pages very LOOSELY follow Shannon Green's Journaling in 5s idea. By very loosely, I mean using the different sessions as a "prompt" for creating each layer of the journal pages. However, my friends and I did not strictly follow the time restraints and if we felt like adding something that was not specific to that layer, we did it anyway. But, it was a good way to get started on journal backgrounds.
My pages combine a gelli print first layer and then I added images from calendars, magazines, napkins and books. I also added pieces of different washi tapes, ephemera, stamped images, tissue paper, fibers and fabric scraps. I added color or blended colors together using Neocolor water color crayons and a water brush. Some extra doodling was done using a black permanent ink pen.
I found these journal pages so relaxing and fun to do. It's sort of like playing with big girl paper dolls!
Enjoy the rest of your week and weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
