Today's Art Journal Page...
The bird image is from Birds & Blooms Magazine (a great resource for beautiful images and it's affordable!). I also used scrapbook paper from my stash, dictionary paper, magazine text, handmade cloud stamps, acrylic and watercolor paint and gesso. Finished page is 8" x 10."
Dawn had asked me how long I work on a piece. It really varies, but I tend to be slowww. This one took a couple of days because I waited for my layers of paint to dry before moving on. The process went like this:
Looked for a quote to express what I was feeling yesterday, and found the Gandhi one.
Painted page with numerous oranges and pink acrylics mixed together.
Misted with White Studio Calico "Mr. Huey" mist.
Added paper collage pieces.
Glued on hummingbird.
4 layers of rays under the birds wings - black pastel, white gesso, yellow acrylic and neon orange for an accent.
Drew journaling lines.
3 layers of white sharpie poster paint pen inside the bigger letters.
How about you? Do you usually finish your projects all at one time? What's your process like? I'd love to know, and I bet others would too!
Thanks so much for visiting - I really appreciate it!
