Today’s BlogMas is an art journal page I created from a magazine page. I loved this image and actually created the background to go with the pic. It spoke to me.
I usually do make backgrounds ahead of time – it’s a good way to be creative and just relax – you are just sticking stuff here and there or spray painting a stencil or mask. Maybe Mark making or ink blobbing — so no pressure.
Sometimes when creating I will wipe off my brush or maybe press the used stencil on a blank journal page. Then use that as a beginning when creating a background later for my art journal.
This layout speaks to my feeling a bit rushed – hot and frantic at times. I like to be busy but it can be just too crazy at times. My mind is usually feverishly going over whatever I am dreaming or worrying about so this image worked well with that idea.
You can Journal through your images in this way.
