I also just recently took an online class from Itza Gomez on doing an art journal page.
This was my result but I did it on cereal box cardboard…
First layer was gesso, then masking tape/washi tape, then paint, and another layer of paint, after that it was using a stencil with molding paste, and then we sprayed it then used other stencils with paint, then added glitter, then coloured in some images (fish, shells, mermaid), and stuck them to the background. Added a layer of pearlex varnish to hold on the paper pictures and glitter. Then we added black marker lines around the images and white paint.
So many layers. So much fun!
Then I decided to follow those principals and to an art journal cover…
FWF = Fiskateers with faith – from the online group called Fiskateers. We have a monthly scripture challenge to do in any form we want.
Next page I did was challenge number 2 – I’ve already done challenge number 1 in another form.
My journaling is private and put into an inclusion pocket. It’s all about what I think of the scripture that’s on the Front of the pocket.
And something to muddle your mind… I flipped the book over. So that I can art journal with Terri Sprouls class on Tuesdays 6pm PST (NZ Wed 1pm) live at her youtube channel. She gives homework and asks you to post it on her facebook wall.
And my title page….
So yea that is the upside down side.
So that’s it for now for my art journaling.
I love this layering form of art. You maybe seeing more of this mixed media art form from me.
