Okay....on to Art Journalling....I've said it before, I'm not your 'traditional' art journal type in that I don't write all over my pages, for me, it is just a place to play, try new stuff and just be creative. This weeks theme was collage and I had this face that I drew so I decided to create an outfit for her and plop her head on top. Oh what fun I had doing this one! The little flowers were punched out on various papers all from the same basic grey paper pack as the stripes using old SU punch. The funny thing is that I hated this paper and was ready to toss it but once I put it on there and gave it a wash of some gold paint I fell in love.
Then I didn't think it was 'collagey' enough so I did this. Cut the flowers and the fence free hand, added some paint (of course!) then got a little crazy with my white sharpie poster paint pen.
I have to say I AM partial to the first one but that's just me...I think it is the rich gold and red colours that I adore.
I'll be stalking Emily's blog until the post comes up because I can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with this week! I'm having a BLAST doing this!
