Terry's journal. i was trying to channel samantha kira on this one. i just doodled a little bit. i do not doodle. considering that, i think it came out pretty nicely. the background paint was applied with a credit card scraping method. the circles were stamped with acrylic ink using the end of a pen. i also played a bit with my left hand to see what would happen.
the first spread in Terry's calendar journal for march 2010. i am trying out new things to find a method or style that i like. this one started with masking tape all over the thing, then i used ink for the circle stamped things, water soluble oil pastels for shading, some cut out circles of various coordinating papers and the little bird from a collage sheet. i like it. it is not my usual look, but i don't want everything i do to be similar.
i am taking 4 online classes right now in hopes of finding some new techniques and maybe what my 'style' really is. Journal 365 with Pam Carricker, Color Beyond the Basics with Julie Prichard and Chris Cozen, Extreme Collage with Julie and Chris also, and watercolor pencil techniques with Marilyn Harris. i think i am going to come up with some good stuff out of these.[Photo]
