As you all know its been a rough few weeks for me but I am glad to be getting back to some art. I am hoping it will help heal me or at the very least distract me from myself as I grieve. I have never done an art journal mostly because I don't like painting on paper when it curls up from the wet media. I know, I am a perfectionist that way. lol I had one laying around for about a year and gave it a whirl. The pages were really thin so I glued some of them together before I added gesso.
I used my caran d'ache watersoluble crayons, stamps, black gesso, and white gesso to make the mishmash you see on this page. I was letting myself be messy which I hardly ever do but it felt good to just spill out all the stuff in my head on this page. And I actually like it! lol
I am sharing this today over at Paint Party Friday. It feels good to be back sharing some new art. Hop on over there and check out all the lovelies!
