Thanks so much for taking a look at my week 5 art journal challenge entries. I had a lot of fun making them.
The first one I'll share is for Colour Me Positive. The challenge was to use a self image or make a self portrait. Here's what I did:
I have to tell you, it was super fun sticking my face in the page. I used a photo of me that I doctored up a bit of course. The techniques were pretty simple. I just used some watered down acrylics over a collages background.
Next, I'll share my page for Embrace Your Art. The prompt was "what's your favorite color?" and the challenge was to use Saran wrap:
I'm sure it might be difficult to see how or where I used the Saran Wrap so I'll tell you; I made a background using the Saran Wrap method (I'm someday going to make a pic by pic tutorial of that one for you) and I cut it up to make the tiles. I did use some other backgrounds for the tiles too. I wasn't sure if it screamed "RED" enough so that's when I decided to just state it.
On to the next....
Here we have my entry for Journal52. They had a couple different prompts about the moon. One was about a full moon, and the other was about "moon madness." I tried to incorporate them both a little:
🔹For the background I used both alcohol inks and pigment inks.
🔹And the stars in the background are embossed with silver embossing powder.
