Every so often, I am taking moments to do some art journalling. I enjoy the aspect of play that I have when I create an art journal page. Sometimes I have an idea or visual picture in my mind of what I want to create and other times it is purely play with no plans at all. For this page, I did have inspiration and knew I wanted to create a hand reaching towards tear drops or rain, with a vibrant purple dress.
The background blue, the dress and hand were created using gelatos and the the drops were created using Dylusions spray inks. It is important to wait for the drips to dry in between if you don’t want the colours to mix and have more control of how fear the drips go down the page. I have added some splatters of red paint to be symbolic but the red also works really well with the purple too.
This page is in progress but I thought I would share anyway. With my art journal pages I am less concerned with getting them ‘finished’ and am happy to just work on them when I feel like it.
If you like playing with paper, inks, paints or other art supplies, art journalling is a fun way to experiment without worrying about the end result.
Thanks for stopping by,
