'Flying' Journal Page

Another bit of double spread journaling in my 21 x 13 cm Moleskine journal .  This time entitled 'Flying'.  The background was made using spray inks, acrylic paints with masks over a pre-gessoed page.  The page is pictured at the end of the post prior to having any decoration added.

The flying girls are collaged and are a digital download from the lovely Helga at ARTchix Studio .  These have been trimmed out and stuck in place.  I just love the butterfly winged dress and hat on the girl on the right !

Lots of doodling with Posca pen in red, gold, black and yellow and stamping with Archival black & green inks with a leafy vine stamp helped hold the design together.

Finally the words were printed on paper with a pink background, trimmed out and finished with more Posca pen before sticking in place.

I do find it difficult to know when to stop adding things and am still finding out what I really feel comfortable with as my 'style'.  I am really loving doing these though and have lots of ideas which I still want to try.

  2. Well I think you're doing a great job with these journal pages. I personally think on a journal page more is more as they are meant to look busy. It's only my opinion as I don't even do journal pages!!

    Anyway wait until you get started with Pan Pastels on them too Sid - lol
