Here on this blog I am going to share how I made the page for today's prompt on Self.
Today's art challenge was to 'draw a picture of yourself or find a photograph of yourself to stick in the journal. Cut out words from magazines that describe you in positive terms and stick them on your page'.
I sprayed Butterscotch Colorwash through a stencil into the watercolour page on the right. I wiped the stencil off on a piece of manila card (on the left).
I sprayed some inks randomly on the page and let them run across before dabbing it dry with my cloth.
I printed a photo of me onto an ordinary piece of copy paper and tore round it. I used gel medium to stick it to the page.
I didn't have any magazines so I typed some words using different fonts. Last year I did the Christy Tomlinson class 'She had 3 hearts' and one of the exercises was to ask your firends to describe you in three words so I used some of those words for this page.
I added the odd black line to the stencilled arrows and wrote my journaling around the outside of the stuck on words.
I hope you enjoy today's prompt. See you tomorrow.
