Hi everyone! I finished a couple of art journal pages over the weekend that I can't wait to share with you! They are both in my vintage record album journal, which is the main one I am using these days.
The first one started off looking like this...
It's a page from a children's book called "I Walk At Night." It was being discarded by my local library, so I snatched it up. I just love the illustrations! They remind me of my own cats - Willie and Johnny!
I made it into an ode to our late nights in the scraproom (click to see the details)...
You can't really tell in the photo, but it's very sparkly. I don't use glitter that much, but this warranted busting out the stickles. Ha. Other things used include: miscellaneous scrapbook paper and ephemera, gesso, neocolor II crayons, Stabilo pastel pencils, Bienfang Watercolor Brush Pens, Sharpie Meanstreak, and Pan Pastels.
Back in November 2009, I took a month-long workshop from Kelly Kilmer called "A Prompt A Day," and I just loved it! In fact, I loved it so much that I took it again the next month! December got busy tho, so about the last ten prompts went unfinished. Until now! This page is inspired by one of the prompts from the class, which asks you to use a photo of yourself that particularly resonates with you. I pulled out this one, because I love how proud of myself I look! It was before the cultural norms kicked in that tell you to be modest - HA!
The journaling is one of my favorite quotes. It's by Marianne Williamson, and was used by Nelson Mandela in one of his speeches. Click on the image and you will be able to read it.
I will leave you with one of my new fave pics of Willie and Johnny. I call it "synchronized cats..."
Until next time - SHINE ON MY FRIENDS!!!
