I don’t always plan my art journal page, they often just evolve as i go. Sometimes i start with a word in my head, or a colour i makes me feel happy, more often i start with a rough idea of the theme: a bird flying, a house, flowers near a stream. This time i wanted to create a woman with long flowing hair. I knew i wanted her to be thoughtful.
I love how this turned out, and to me the butterflies are her thoughts as they enter her mind. Beautiful carefree thoughts.
I used: dylusions sprays over the entire page the painted over area with a wet foam brush to manipulate the colours and add contours. The woman’s face is a hand cut stencil painted in black paint, details of hair and on face are added with fabre castell gelatos. Butterflies are printables cutout and glued down.
