Altered Book: Tiny Grid

“Humor is reason gone mad.”
Groucho Marx

after final touches, an extra layer of acrylics, edged with neocolors, writings with white uniball

before final touches

airbrush acrylics, neocolors, ephemera, white uniball marker

I shared the "before" page at the bottom to show you that when you think a page is almost finished, you can still add more, add details and depth. You can work on your page as long as you want to! There's no rush to get to the next page, no rush to be "done" with a page in your art journal. It's all about the process, so work as long as you are enjoying yourself. For example, try embellishing the edges of your collaged papers with paint and words and neocolor II wax crayons. I tried to build the grid with ample margins, a pair of golden rectangles {unmeasured, but theoretically accurate}. These green pages are from the hardback I'm altering into the noticing journal.

I really, really like these 'grids' you make - this one as well as the pink one in the former post - it's a feast to the eye. I especially like the white space you leave around the image... I should do that more often too!

I love this technique! You posted some other pages from this journal a while back and I used that as inspiration for a couple of journal pages of my golden rectangles or anything but bits of previous journal pages that I adhered & drew around...I'll probably post those pages later this week! As always, the inspiration I find here is priceless! Thank you!
