There are 8 of us in the group and we have each chosen a theme for our CJ.
My theme is 'Serendipity'.
Serendipity means 'happy accident' or pleasant surprise, finding something good without looking for it! My art journalling is all about Happy accidents!!!
To make the journal I took out the pages form a Children's encyclopedia and replaced them with blank Bristol board pages. I have done an introduction page but forgot to take a photo!
I used lots of paints, inks, sprays and stamps for my inner lining pages then stitched the Bristol board in place.
My page for my journal.
Here is my latest page Artistic License Circle journal page.
It is for Frances's CJ. she gave us all art board to work on.
She chose a painting by Paul Klee, she divided into 9 sections and asked the group to do one section each using what ever medium we wished.
I have used Golden artist light moulding paste and shaped and scraped the design into it.
Then I used my acrylic paints and sprays to colour the surface.
All the other boards made so far are very different and fit together so well, I am sure the finished journal will look amazing.
