TBP: Journal Spilling, Part 6

The next part of Journal Spilling was creating backgrounds, tearing/cutting them apart, piecing it together, and completing it with journaling.  I decided to rip out a journal page, tear that in half, and practice some techniques.

The top half of the page was embossed doodled, emphasized with a wash of watercolor.

The bottom half of the page was a wash of watercolor with playing with different colored inks.

Ripping those completed technique pages into smaller pieces; I threw them onto a page, wrote in some journaling, and finished it off by drawing in some lines to look like they were sewn together.

Some things are more goals than wishes and dreams . . . but those shown above are just a few of them.

The Book Project is an ongoing project to put my collection of art & craft books to good use by working through them. You can read more about it here. I would also love to hear if you are working through your books as well or would like to join me!
