This week : the 12th week of 2013 our Art Journal Challenge word was EXPRESSION
Here's my page:
I covered my background with patterned papers, text from old books & pieces of sheet music .
I stamped onto the background with white gesso - butterflies and blocks. I painted a block on the right hand page with gesso to do my drawing on.. I added alphabet stickers for the word EXPRESSION.
The quote was printed on the PC and glued to the page (right hand page).
I drew on the singing bird and coloured it with Inktense watercolour pencils. I outlined my drawing with a black Sharpie marker and also added some doodles and some journaling on both pages.
The colours I used on these pages was way out of my comfort zone. Not crazy about the colours.
Here are some close-ups for detail:
Wishing you all a very happy and creative long-weekend
