I had so much fun with this page for the "A Year In The Life of an Art Journal" group! The guidelines for the challenge were:
THE PROMPT: Imagine
ie: what's in your imagination or where do you imagine yourself
THE STUFF: Pictures or words from magazines/newspapers etc
ie: Words, letters or images that develop your idea
THE TEChNIQUE: mask/stencils
ie: can be anything from flowers, letters, rubberbands or professional mask or stencils
I ended up doing my page in my Vintage Record Album Journal, on one of the LP Sleeves. Here's how it turned out...
My journaling reads: "Let the images in your head spill onto the page without judgment. Follow your "what ifs" to find out the answer. Let your imagination run free."
The model in the magazine image had a slicked back ponytail, so I fixed her up a bit to be more of a flower child, with a china marker, acrylic paint and a rub-ons from Basic Grey.
The masking and stenciling may be hard to pick out. I used masking fluid from Maya Road on the bottom layer - there are some words on the bottom, a doodled border and scallops around the hole in the middle of the sleeve. I used a stencil to make the "bubbles" floating out of the urn in the middle of the page. The black and white illustration is done by one of my all-time fave artists, Maxfield Parrish.
The new prompt at "A Year In The Life" just went up today. Check it out here!
Thanks for visiting and I will see you again soon!
