This is the Season of Words in the Get Messy Art Journal community, so I am art journaling in a copy of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.
We were challenged to try and cut out a window in our book, a way to see through a page, so I cut out this circle and coordinated the two pages.
I doodled on the leafs last week, just for fun, and then they found a home in my journal here. I coated them heavily with gel medium, so it will be interesting to see if they lose their colors or not.
Here is what the back page looks like. A gelli print and doodles with watercolors.
I actually just heard the song “flicker” by Lorde and liked the lyrics “I’m quiet like a fire” so I had to use them here. Even better- that song is part of the Mockingjay soundtrack. So appropriate, right?
Now for my least favorite page. I created a blackout poem, by painting over the entire page except for a few different words on the book text.
I like my poem, I just don’t like how chaotic this page ended up. It’s too messy.
There you have it! I am liking sharing these every week, it’s a good creative habit!
Have you done any art journaling lately?
