embrace the journey – journal page materials

Here is the link to today’s art journal page.  

 This page started as a waste paint page. I used it soak up all the excess paint from a couple paintings I recently made. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do on the page so I left it until today.  

 I drew out the girl and used Liquitex gesso and the new Distress Crayons for her skin tone. Her eyes were coloured in with a Recollections pen from Michaels. I used my big brush Faber-Castell Pitt pen for the outline and her hair. Her dress is made of old book and dictionary pages as well as some Tim Hotz tissue paper.  

 I finally added some small doodles with my medium Faber-Castell Pitt pen and added the quotes. These quotes are small talk from Tim Holtz Idea-ology line.  

 I think the thing I liked best about this page is how well her dress turned out. I originally wanted to paint over it but changed my mind. It was something I don’t normally do and I think it looked good the way it is.
