Another not desperately exciting or artistic page, in fact this probably wouldn't have made it to my blog under normal circumstances, but I want to be sure that this Art Journal Every Day journey is fully documented, just to prove that I actually stuck to it.
I must admit that some days finding that ten minutes feels a lot like a chore, especially if I am really tired. But other days it's great to have an excuse or encouragement to start playing.
Anyway, this little rant page was three days in the making, believe it or not!
- One day to stamp the background with smiley faces and the repeated phrase "it's NICE to be IMPORTANT, but it's more IMPORTANT to be NICE" - very much my life philosophy.
- One day to gesso and colour the background with various paints and sprays, and stick it into my journal
- One day to add the journalling, stencilled image, photo and stamped dotty border
My favourite part of the page is where the uninked dots on the border stamp have lifted the stencilled image, which I hadn't realised wasn't quite dry. Neat, if unintended, effect. I must try that again deliberately one day :)
