I am making an art journal this weekend and thought I would take you all through my process as I create it. I have discovered that if I am creative in an art journal at least once a week I feel better inside my own head.
This piece I started by taping two pieces of art paper together to make them into a larger piece. I used two pieces of yellow colored paper as my base.
Then I took my acrylic paints and put dots all over the pages in all sort of colors.
I pressed the pages together to make a paint collage all over both pages. I took a plastic card and dragged it on the outside of the pages to help set the paint together.
I have a conglomeration of different colored paint on both pages. Check the pictures out.
Next I need to pick a topic for this art journal page.
I used a black marker to make faces out of the paint on my paper today. They are big ugly faces looking to the side of the pages. I colored in the eye pupil black.
I added black and white tape to the edges.
It has turned into an abstract piece named Faces.
