Week 3 of Season of Words for get messy art journal.. let's go!
- watercolour & felt tip
One of my favourite quotes from the time travellers wife. About defiance and yourself and protection.
- acrylic, collage, stamps & felt tip
A page dedicated to my upbringing. I have spoken on my blog before about my countryside childhood and subsequent rebellion but wanted this page to be different; fuller and vibrant. I stuck to clean lines, clear colours and layers full of mark making. I liked the link between collage and childhood as layers form and your personality grows away from where and who you were raised by - but ultimately it is always in you - at your core.
- collage & acrylic
My version of a self portrait. As a pretty vain person, I'm a little weird about using images of myself in my art journal.
I liked the footprints as an offbeat version of identity though and this is my favourite page I've made so far this season (!)
Magic, Music & Words
- photoshop, acrylic, watercolour & marker pen
I love this quote. I like the idea of being stitched together and that we are made up of all these different elements. I wanted to make this a minimal and bold page - but at the last minute snuck in some photoshop layering. Old habits die hard ;)
