I started this page a couple of weeks ago by creating a simple ink wash over the page in three colors. I added some salt over the wet page to add some extra mottling.
Today, I decided to finish it. Of course, I have very little experience with art journaling...okay, none! I decided to go a bit Rogue with it and just do whatever came to mind. Once I got the main thought, the rest came somewhat easily...not very prettily but easily.
Relish Reading plate; decorative flourish and I am the Master of my Fate sentiment from Nature Notes plate; flower from Just Sayin' collection and star from Carnival Dreams set (Rogue Redhead Design); Collage Images: Enchanted Mercantile
I am hoping to get better at this format but you have to start somewhere right? It was really fun to create the background and then mess it up completely although I am fairly sure that was just my process and not how it's supposed to be done.
I am entering this page into the following fabulous challenges:
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Try Something New (this is my first art journal attempt)
CR84N Color Challenge - Grape, Blue and Green
Now, if you want to find out more about Art Journaling and see some great articles on journaling in generalwith much better art than mine, check out this month's Unruly PaperArts - Journal It!
