Art Journal Entry
It's been awhile since I played in my art journal.
This page was surely inspired by our visit to the King Tut
exhibition last year at the de Young Museum. The way
everything was displayed was perfect. It really brought me
to another world. So...why so long for the inspiration to kick in?
Well, I was flipping through pages in my journal and saw another
one of those unfinished sketches and I couldn't help myself. I
wanted to experiment with my 3D paints and see if it would
hold well on my pages. It did and the touchable texture it
created is fabulous!
I also wanted an encaustic look without having to warm up
my beeswax, so I added layers of mod podge with a bit of
white paint and went to town with my heat gun. It created
just the primitive look I was going for.
This journal entry is called "Uncaged Heart". I really like
the way it turned out. My art journal is where I enjoy
experimenting and I hope you are inspired to do the same.
Thanks for coming to visit! Have fun with your creativity! :)
