visual journal spread, III

 |  October 23, 2008


This is the last journal spread I have to share for now. I prepared more pages in Judy’s workshop, but they are still waiting for words or more arting up. This page has many many layers, including water soluble crayons (I think, I can’t remember!), acrylic paint, stamped images and designs, plus stencils, plus my hand….I am sure I am forgetting something. Now all that is left is to do some writing.

I think the main point of this spread is not to be afraid of layering and covering up what’s already there. It probably will look like a big mess in the beginning, but you can tie it all together in the end. I still have more of that to do on this spread.

    I have a really hard time covering up things I like even though I know its what makes a strong collage. What is the 'tying up' process like for you? I struggle with it.

    Yes that's fun. Make a big mess and then tie together in the end. I like the stamps you used. I can picture this page with writing on it. Awesome!
