i have been playing around with digital art journaling for a while now but i finally decided to get out my paper, glue, scissors, etc. and create a page the 'old fashioned' way.
i will be using quotes as jumping off points within my first pages and am looking forward to binding them together in some artistic presentation (when i get that far).
this page is created on a lightweight cardboard base (cereal box).
some of the supplies/techniques that i used:
- water color ~ paints & pencils
- paper napkins
- various found images & words
- some stitching
- micron pen
- lots of glue
i've enjoyed making art journaling a (mostly) daily habit during this time and i hope to keep it up. with that in mind i found a group of like minded souls over at Balzer Designs. Julie Fei Fan Balzer has an "Art Journal Every Day" link-up on fridays and i'm going to jump in today. if you're a fan of mixed media art and/or art journaling you might want to check it out and join in too. today she has three fabulous short video's to share not to mention what surprises you will find if you visit some of the other artists links.
i also had the time to create a digital art journal page using a crop from a photo of this cut and paste journal page:
so looking above you see 'before' and below you see the 'after' the digital magic page.
would you share with me which one you like the best: the digital page or the one that i created with lots of glue? any particular reasons why?
i had fun making both. different skills and supplies needed and different surprises within the processes.
as always you should be able to click on any of my images and see the details in a larger size if you wish to do so.
