"Parasol's & Pink + Orange Brick Swirls"
These photos show my process in creating these four journal pages. I was really happy with these. I don't know if it's the colors or their faces but these types of pages are pleasing to my eyes! In these pages I introduced a few different Art Journal techniques. The first one is the circle cut out which many of you have see me do in my last journal. I wanted to create a page like this to show my students. Immediately when I cut that hole the focus turns to all four pages instead of two. It's definitely more challenging and takes a little more planning. I also showed the way you can take piece of images from magazines and transform them into something totally different like the parasols I created from a flower and a random pattern I found in a magazine. Lastly I showed how the images on the different pages can be very different even when the faces are exactly the same.
