Art Journal - Stop

Art Journal - Stop

For the latest prompt at A Year in the Life of an Art Journal as my inspiration in addition to the "misting" prompt at Gauche Alchemy.

However, for my misting technique I chose spraypaint as lately I've been super inspired by graffiti and I like the opaqueness spray paint creates. There's five layers of paint on this page (I know i have a problem) - the first layer is my "palette" layer - paints i've used on other projects throughout the last couple of months. Over that to make it more cohesive I used acrylic paint with some moulding paste and Punchinella to stencil it. I then slathered my hands in paint to do the imprint. Then I cut out outlines of my hands, used them as masks while I also took some lovely plastic canvas from the Wholey Sheet Kit and lightly spraypainted over the entire page. I then sprayed some "Merlot"Glimmer Mist for a soft drippy effect and then dripped more acylic paint at the top. Finally I put some alpha stickers on that say "Stop - Are You Happy." I wanted to journal more but then decided that one sentence says it all. And my art journalling these days has concentrated more on visual evocation than literal. But that one sentence produces an answer that then produces so many more questions....

Art Journal Pages

A couple of art journal pages:

Art Journal Page - My Body is a Cage

I made this awhile ago but never got around to scanning it. It's inspired by Peter Gabriel's cover of "My Body is a Cage" on his latest album.

Art Journal Page - Birds

Art Journal Page inspired by the prompt at gauchealchemy.wordpress.com/ "Free as a Bird"

Scrap Your Crap - Five

Scrap Your Crap - Five

This is for a blog trade with Gutter Girlz and Scrap Your Crap - to design a page using things in increments of five.

There's five photos (from my 365 Photo Project), Five buttons, Five washers, Five types of patterned paper and Five Flower Embellishments.

Close up of the texture created by acrylic paint, Heavy Gel and spray paint:
