Imagine

My page for the second prompt for A Year in the Life of an Art Journal:

THE PROMPT: Imagine - CHECK
ie: what's in your imagination or where do you imagine yourself
THE STUFF: Pictures or words from magazines/newspapers etc - CHECK
ie: Words, letters or images that develop your idea
THE TEChNIQUE: mask/stencils - CHECK
ie: can be anything from flowers, letters, rubberbands or professional mask or stencils



I made a video of how I made this page :)

I watched your video. Can you tell me which kind of paper you are using? It's pretty sturdy! Also, where did you get that incredible sunburst stencil?

Thanks!

Hi Vanessa :) Thank you :D The journal is a Strathmore Mixed Media Journal ... first time I've used one of these and I must say I LOVE IT! The pages are the perfect weight, no need to gesso before hand (which I don't mind but it does make the pages quite stiff). I'll definitely be using more of these!!

Thank you Leah :) The ink dropper was exactly that! Bombay India Ink by Dr Martens in a little bottle with a dropper.

Just found this through Julie's month in numbers board and I am glad I have. I really enjoyed watching this video. It is great to see the steps. I am trying to do more art journalling so this has been fun. Do like the stencil. Your thinking fingers made me smile. TFS.
