E is for Evade

E is for Evade

Got my "E" page done for the A Year in the Life of An Art Journal blog.

This page is one of those times when you step back when you're done and can't believe that that art came out of you. It doesn't happen often, but it's a pretty amazing feeling when it does! I love paint. Really Really love it. Took me 37 years to figure that out... :)

There is journaling under the blue flap - I bought a magazine last weekend from Somerset Studios about Art Journals (ya how serendipitous is that?!) and one of the techniques was using flaps and frames to hide journalling to make it more interactive and/or private. So, there you go.

Tattoos - Inspiration

so, i did something i've never done before - i tried to transfer a scrap page i did first digitally to paper.
i'm not sure i like the result - maybe because i feel it lacks some sort of creativity since i had somewhat of a guide to go by? It's why i don't like to use "sketches" or "maps," i feel like they stifle my process because i have to conform to something.

i love these fabric thickers so much, i've bought, um, 3 packs. I haven't seen them in other fonts though?

OK, and this is the original digital page:

Junk in My Trunk: Gutter GIrlz

Layout inspired by the prompt over at Gutter Girlz. Photo's and journalling inspired by Ashley Wren's "Love Yourself in 2009" class :)

A more simple 2D layout from me :)
The background paper is from a paper pad I saw at Michael's that i immediately grabbed without even looking at it mostly because of the name - "Teen Angst"!!!!! It's hit or miss, but more than 50% is good patterns. Then, of course, I added a bunch of my own paint and tape and glimmer mist and lace.

This layout is inspired by a brand new challenge blog called Punk Rock Scrappers.
The challenge is to introduce yourself, but I kind of strayed away after i chose my photo and started the layout. So it's more Fischerspooner inspired in the end.

My costume is a Fischerspooner dancer from their Sweetness video.

The background is Basic Grey Obscure paper covered with mesh that has the metallic polka dots on it.
It looks super cool in person.
I grunged up the photo in photoshop a bit and tried to replicate it on the layout with paint.

If you haven't seen the Sweetness video, it's GORGEOUS!
Here's the direct link if you have 9 mins (it's more a mini-movie):
