I have started an art journal!
I think this is like the third I have started but hopefully this one I'll keep on doing...I have decided to make it a musical journal...and do a lyric from a song for each entry. I have started others but this is the first one I have finished...yay me! I'm not really into dance music but this music video was played allot back when it was popular...it was by Basment Jaxx
so here is my page...its kinda weird but it was fun to make :)
ok now what did I do...ha ha lets see...I'm using an old book so I used white guesso to kinda cover up the words, then I took a page out of a guarding magazine and glued it on there (the side I liked face down), after the glue dried I sprayed it with water and rubbed it until the top picture came off leaving the images I wanted (faded but I liked it) I then added some acrylic paint in yellow and green, then I modge podged over that, then I cut out my lyrics out of magazines and glued them down, then took some bubble paper and made purple sparkles, then I cut out my Stampotique images and colored them blinged them up then glued them on....and I think thats it...sorry if its confusing but I really like how it turned out...it makes me laugh!
ok now the reasons behind my madness.....
there is a spring time challenge at stampotique - idea - images, spring flowers, and spring colors
there is a challenge at the Octopode factory - bling it on - idea - sparkle everywhere (bowtie necklaces, dress buttons pants shoes, purple spots)
there is a challenge at the Haunted Design house - off with their heads - idea - song lyrics, and switching heads.
there is a group on the Smeared and Smudged Forum that is for Art journals...lots of inspiration there too...and prompt #5 is lyrics....score!
