I had time for another Art Journal page a couple of days ago and thought I would share it with you. It's the first time I've drawn a face in my journal and I learned more about using my Neocolor Crayons (water based). It's fun to combine mediums isn't it ?
I've come to realize that I enjoy being creative the most when I don't have a plan. That's what my Art Journal is for right ? .....just 'go with the flow' (as Alie says) which I tried to do with this page. Working without a plan is the opposite of my personality type, so practicing 'not thinking and just doing' is good exercise for me.
I drew the lady & the large doodle flower with pigment pens. Next I added some texture using a stencil and light molding paste. I coloured the lady with the Neocolor Crayons (water based). The background is acrylic paint along with a little Silks acrylic glaze and then I added the dot texture with a stencil and acrylic paint.
Create & Art are from the Artistic Expressions Set from Chocolate Baroque. I've been using this set a lot and over the holidays I ordered the Artistic Affirmations (gift to myself) to go along with them.
I honestly did not pay attention to the prior page in my journal when I started. I simply opened the book, folded over the page and covered the rest with wax paper to protect it. After I was finished and I opened my book I was surprised ! I'm obviously drawn to these colours. (I blogged the house page previously, it was done with Dylusions Inks, and the outlines & flowers are with Neocolors)
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day !
