It's been a busy week, but I'm working on journal pages.....with no single theme! It seems pretty random to me, we'll see where it takes me. Right now, we are between fresh lettuce and please be seated with some of my thoughts on creativity thrown in, hum! Sometimes it is better NOT to over analyze and this may be one of those times.
A friend gifted me with some walnut ink that she made! The background is wet gesso spread over the page and sprayed with walnut ink and blended with a credit card. In real life, the color is closer to the brown on the left side than the gray on the right.
I had some fun gluing on cardboard and pieces of paper and tissue paper.
I used India ink and correction pen on the lettering, with touches of Pitt pen and pencil.
I think this side looks close to finished!
The fun is in the details! I've, also, sprayed it several times with diluted walnut ink that created the speckles and splotches you can see here.
This page really has some blank spots....I like my chair drawing just not sure what to do next. I started out by asking myself that question at the top of the page, above the tape measure.........."where do we go from here".
It's fun to look at these pages close up, the small details show up so much better.
I drew this chair for the purpose of carving a stamp with this design. So, I'll be carving a stamp and finishing this page this weekend.
Hope you have a good weekend and are able to include some time to create!
