100 Days | Art Journal (4)

More results from my goal of helping my creative mojo by making stuff (mostly art journal pages) for a hundred days –

The flowers page was made by covering up a split gelprint that I really didn’t know where to go with – inspired by the cover-up technique by Amber Creative. Now I want to deliberately make more mistakes so I can cover them up! šŸ™‚ Painting with white requires quite some concentration in the nooks and crannies though.

I started using more finger-painting along with my brushes – it’s a different, but equally liberating, activity. Also, more watercolors. I made one of the pages here on Diwali, and it obviously reflects my feelings about the festivities.

I used a new material – lipstick! – for the outlines of the hearts. I’ve used metallic acrylics in a more ‘structured’ manner this time, for the hearts and for the feathers. I also added some words to the feathers page, but random words in my art journal don’t really appeal to me, so I probably won’t be trying this too much.

  1. More beautiful pages. All are so different, but blend well together. The flowers are so sweet and I love the upside down mermaid scales on the last page šŸ˜‰ And lipstick as an art medium is fantastic!! Did you have to put a sealant or a finish over it?

    1. Thank you Ginny! The lipstick does require a sealant. I decided that the gesso that I applied over it was enough – the lipstick spreads if rubbed using slight pressure, which anyway doesn’t happen within a closed book, so I let it be. A soft gel might be a good alternative.

  2. These are awesome! I love that you said you want to make more mistakes so you can cover them up. You reminded me to clean up this week and explore with lipstick. Thanks
