9 x 12" loose art journal page on watercolor paper.
One of many finds within a stash of 35mm slides, this is a photograph of my brother and I in front of my dad's car in the 1960's. I printed the photo on watercolor paper to give it a matte feel. Collaged on fluid acrylics with batik paper, handmade FIMO stamps and found stamps. The little blue circles with dots inside were created with the lid of a pen, a technique from inside journal #2 by Flickr artist J
I wanted to do something different. So I followed two prompts from Kick-Start Your Art Journal (Part 2 ): <Photograph> and <Limited Palette>. The colors are calm aqua and pastels and the page is built around just one central photo. A bit of journaling... and it will be finished.
Tomorrow I'll share another page created from the same prompts. Have you tried any of the art journaling prompts?
