a page in my art journal by Sarah


This square journal has lots of my favourite pages in, but some pages that I didn't like.  This one started off covered with torn text paper over which I'd rolled a marble dipped in paint.  I was trying out different things!!


Not liking it I gessoed over most of it, leaving some of the page with the original paint, and gessoed over it again, and again!  Some splatters of blue ink (because the bottle was a bit clogged up) and some transfer letters and I was beginning to like it!


Now there's a reason why you must never work on an extremely tidy desk (well, that's my excuse anyway!).... I had this bright pink painted paper nearby so stamped up a few 'time square' and added them to my page, along with some hydrangea punched flowers and an apt quote!!
