So, as I mentioned in yesterday's post, I've written this week's prompt for the UKScrappers art journaling 'Art Journey' and my focus has been on 'Collaged Characters'. You can visit the forum here to download the PDF which has lots of ideas on how to create your own, but for now, here's my second example:
This is both to avoid the pages going too wrinkly and also because it's a much quicker process and one I've really come to enjoy. I think I'm more of a 'paper + scissors' girl than a 'paintbrush and paint' one. That said, the sunburst around the character is from where I spread gesso thinly through a stencil for a little experiment with texture.
In the 'Art Journey' tutorial I discuss 'head transplants' as a quick, easy and fun way to customise an image you've found in a magazine/catalogue etc. And this lovely creature was one of my examples:
- ANYONE with a stash of spray inks; acrylics; paint dabbers; dyes and pens which they can throw in the direction of these colour-hungry surfaces.
I'm really pleased with how this range has turned out, so ... I guess I should go and start uploading some more ...
