I know that I can do neat and pretty journal pages but the truth is, I don't always want to. Sometimes I just want to be messy and free, and enjoy the art for the process and not the outcome.
The more I work in my black Dylusions journal the more I love it. The black pages give a grungy look which I love working on. I started my pages with some white gesso but I applied it messily and left plenty of space around the edges.
My pages usually go through through a few transformations along the way as I change my mind, or want to add a few more layers. Here I stamped my new colour wheel from my Doodles cube stamp to make 'bullet points' down my page, but this got changed a little along the way ....
I used some of my hand carved (Speedball) stamps:
And I added scribbly writing and doodles:
But then I decided I didn't like the bullet point colour wheels as they were, so I stamped them onto inked card, cut them out and added them over the top!
And I had a bit spare from cutting out a wheel so I added it to my doodle! (And spot the washi tape in the top corner - I just love a bit of washi!)
And on the opposite side of the page (I always work backwards ??? No idea why?!) is a work in progress. I am just enjoying adding layers of colour :-)
Not sure what I'm going to add next ... I'm just going to leave it to sit on my desk for a while until it spake to me ...
Byee for now!
