I wrote my journaling in inktense colored pencils, and then used a wet brush to smear them. That's the blue you see in the background. Then I collaged a piece of fabric, some tissue paper and ledger paper over the top of that. The girl is a photocopy of a doodle I did in one of my notebooks. I thought she deserved a proper place in my journal. :0)
Here's how it looked after the first couple of steps. I already was feeling better...
I painted in some of the flowers with acrylic paint, and then added some neocolor crayon to the background, and green colored pencil to her eyes...
finished her off with some white dots and a title done with white acrylic ink. It felt great to end up with something happy!
The facing page was the cover of an old magazine. I didn't want to do too much to it, because it had a picture of an old Delorean car - remember those? It felt a bit too nostalgic to cover up; so I just added an appropriate quote, and did a little doodling and that was it.
How about you? Do you create to help you work through a hard day?
Thanks for visiting and have an awesome day my friends!
