Wanted to share a bit more of my attempt at art journaling. I’m still at the point where I’m almost hesitant to do so. I have to remind myself that it is something I’m doing just for me, and that there isn’t any “right” way to do it. I’m half afraid that someone will yell at me for doing it badly, lol! Silly, as I’ve had nothing but support from all the “arty” blog friends I’ve made.
So anyway, here we go.
This is the cover of my journal that I am still working on. I want to fill in more of the space, and fix the mermaid’s tail and top. I had cut the tail out of this great sparkly silver paper, but it just doesn’t look how I wanted it when it was done. Still debating what I’ll do with it. I also want to do something with her top, perhaps paint over it. No where near being done, but I like where it’s going so far.
This is another page. I’m pretty happy where it is right now. Of course every time I see it, I think that the water that the turtle is coming out of looks more like a blue “Thinking Chair” than water, lol.
I’m not wildly crazy about this one. I think I rushed too much (the yellow lines on my little figure are from bad scanning – they aren’t on the real picture). I like the idea behind it, but not the actual page. Live and learn, I guess.
These two pages go together. They are by far my favorites so far. I really want to work on doing different types of backgrounds, and I’ve been watching some tutorials to learn more on that. On these two, I like the contrast and the simplicity, though.
I’ve also been working on some sketches, just to kind of get back in the drawing frame of mind. I’m working on getting them scanned, and when I do, I’ll share those, too.
