"Bathing Beauties" journal page in progress
Have a look here at this new two page spread of my "Bathing Beauties" in progress. This is just another paged I prepared for embellishments while I’m at the beach next week!! I love working in this collage medium. Basically I am creating shadows with patterns. I always use a photograph to go by when I do this to get the shadows somewhat realistic. I have done some large canvas pieces in this style and I loved them so much that it motivated me to go on and teach it to my Art Students. This is the first time I am doing it in my journal so it will come out a little differently. On the canvas pieces I would pour a two part resin on top of the finished painting to give it that shiny lacquer. I can’t do that with a journal so this will be an interesting project for next week. I will just have to see how it all turns out.
These images happen to be of my girls at the beach last summer. I pulled them both into one scene for the two page journal spread.
