Art Journaling Fear

a couple more new art journal pages.
for YEARS i've been wanting to explore the notion of fear and my relationship with it.
Even creating an art journal just about fear.
Somewhat unconsciously these pages have that theme.

this photo was from a hike i did recently in north georgia. there was a 90 degree side of a cliff i was asked to climb and not only am i scared of heights, but i've never done anything like climb the side of a rock before. This one had lots of roots and vines growing along it that was used to climb. I was super hesitant at the beginning then went for it and at the top was super proud and relieved!

WIsh Canvas

This is an 8" x 8" canvas i made for my friend Aprils birthday. It's her lovely daughter.
The canvas is inspired by a workshop i took with the lovely Anna Dabrowska a couple of months ago.

Lots of textures and layers and droppy paint and glimmer and found object loveliness!

Notebook for Gretchen

I recently made this notebook for a friend of mine's birthday. I've taken two workshops this summer, one from Andy Skinner and three, actually, from Anna Dabrowska. The techniques i've learned really excite me!!


The back shows what i picked up from Andy, using different techniques and layers for ultimate texture. And, yes, the base of the journal is cardboard.


 The front is inspired by Anna's class. Some of the objects are from her Prima line but a majority is from my "found object" stash. And one last look of the journal in the sun showing all the delectable texture :)
