Art Journal Pages

Here are some art journal pages I have been doing recently, trying out different materials and seeing how I can play with them to create something. The first one I decided to rip a mixture of papers up and glued them to the page, before spraying and painting over the top. I like the textures this created. The second picture I wanted to create a blue page so sprayed a mixture of green and blues and water onto the page and I had some cute fish postcard which I cut out and stuck onto the page. While it isn’t as good as I did hope (it is quite difficult to draw onto the shimmery spray) I am quite happy with it as it is about the process rather than the overall piece and just doing these pages has given me lots of inspiration.

Art Journal Ideas

I started this doodle/ sketch without any real idea, yet when I started to colour it in – especially the blue hair – an idea for a painting struck me!

I have a really big canvas I think this idea will work well on, just not sure how I’m going to actually paint it! I’m going have some flowers and vines on the left side and make it more colourful like a garden.
