Here's an update on what I've been up to on my other blog. I've challenged myself to work in my art journal and post my progress once a week. To help me along, I joined a weekly art journaling group.
This page was a challenge for me. The groups' directive this week was to use tape as a design element on your page. As many art supplies as I have, believe it or not, I do not have any decorative tape. So I used what I had--masking tape.
This spread started out over a year ago as a color experiment. I used a paint chip from the hardware store as inspiration for my color scheme. But of course, the page needed MORE!
I found a quote I liked by George Washington about friendship, which became the theme for my page. Then I looked for an image of George in my magazine clipping files and found this reproduction postage stamp.
I started taping and gluing and then went over my additions with a light coat of unbleached gesso.
I haven't decided if the page is done, but I worked in my art journal! Yay for me! :)
