 This is for a prompt from A Year in the Life of an Art Journal blog using a U2 lyric. The prompt was to draw lips, however, i'm a horrible horrible drawer and at first that was blocking me from doing anything so i decided to just do what i know and use collage so as to not to stress out over it. The background had been created at some point as i was testing some new spray colors i had made. Never let anything go to waste is my motto!


 Some vertical layouts that are all over the place when put together as a collection! WOW. And look at all the found objects thanks to Gauche Alchemy i was able to work in!  hahaha

I love this magazine illustration, i've been coveting it for awhile now and finally just slapped it on down. The background was made with vaseline and acrylic paint and i discovered something so cool it gave me the giggles - put the stencil over the vaseline then when the paint dries you can move the little bits around!!!!!! OEMGEEEE.


 I've also been experimenting with my neeeeeew sewing machine which i'm obviously still trying to get the hang of. But isnt that what an art journal is for?
