While I was working in this book I discovered that I really enjoyed using stencils and materials in a different way than the obvious one. I love using premade art supplies (there is so much gorgeous stuff out there), but I don't like a premade look, so it became my challenge to get a bit of an abstract layout with ready made supplies. It was a lot of fun to play that way and definitely something I want to explore further. You know...with the thousand other things I want to explore further some time someday somehow. ;-)
So here's some more spreads!
|This is my absolute favorite spread in the entire book!|
|I never thought of using rub ons and a circle template this way before.|
|I don't know if you can tell, but the clothes on these paper dolls are cut out from paper. These were done from stencils too.|
|Gouache (Talens) and brush pen (Pitt), hello my darling circles and ribbons!|
|The rose stickers were actually intended to stick on your bike!|
|I don't know if you can read it, but it says "The child is always hungry". Ain't that the truth! ;-)|
|I had a lot of trouble getting this one right, but it worked out in the end.|
|The card on the left was made by my friend Chanou. A little origami christmas tree!|
And that concludes the artsy part of the journal. As I said last time I also added a bunch of photographs, but those were hard to take a snapshot of, since the glare was too prominent. I filled the book about two thirds with images and art. The rest of the book has been reserved for my writing. How I did that I will show you coming Wednesday!
Until then I wish all of you a wonderful and artsy week!
