Here’s the journey that this art page for a journal took, in the creation of it.
I’m new to this and I’m not working with usual art journaling/journaling supplies! I urgently need to go do some shopping 🛍 🛒 soon.
Meanwhile, I did one ☝🏽 with help from artists in a Facebook group I’ve joined lately. Thanks 😊 🙏🏽 to them I was inspired to create the art page.
This is done on brown paper bag with acrylics, tissue paper, old newspaper 📰 🗞, cloth scrap and garlic 🧄 skin.
The printing you see is done ✅ by cutting a garlic bulb in half, and using black acrylic paint. The lacy effect is from a left over sticky tape strip from paper lace.
This art page is now an insert in A Boy’s Junk Journal.
Now, you be the judge as to if I need to go on that shopping trip or not 😁
If not, I think 🤔 I must expand my sights and conquer more techniques or processes that are off the cuff. May be create an entirely new medium in the creative and joyful business of art journaling 😊.
