I mentioned a back that I would post a few photos of some of my Art Journal pages that I have I've been dabbling with over the last year or so. One journal I made using water colour paper, having watched Teesha Moore's brilliant 2 part video on how to make your own Art Journal.
here is a link to part 1 :-
part 2 follows on afterwards.
This Hearts spread was inspired by a lovely
You Tube video Life On Hold'
I wasn't quite happy with how it looked,I wanted more texture, so I went back and I worked on it some more, using gold acrylic paint to fill in the hearts and added a Helen Keller quote and was much happier with the look of it.
This is another page from my handmade journal I colourised the paper with watercolour paint. I found this 'half butterfly' image in a Pheonix Trading catalogue and I loved the colours and the fact that it appears to be flying away so thought it would work well in my Art Journal.
The pages in the journal I bought had a a very glossy finish, which did not work well when painted onto directly, so I've started using other papers to make the backgrounds on which can then be pasted into the journal. Here are two background pages that have been stuck in to the journal, and I will complete later.
I'll post some more pictures when I've had a chance to add journalling.
