Art Journal 8/9

I worked on another art journal spread last night while watching TV. I had the background mainly done. I just added a bit and drew up a little girl with wings to shower paint over the next page. I call it my "I am an artist" spread. More often than not we forget when we create anything at all we are artists. We all need a reminder from time to time. I think every art journal should have a spread that has an affirmation to oneself that you are an artist, because you said so. More than just because you say so, also because you created something it is so.

Lots of media used on this page. I won't bore you with details but the background is around 6 layers! Yay! The little girl was done on water color paper in tons of medias and then cut out and glued on the page. I had so much fun making that paint splatter! Canned air is awesome! Here is a little close up of my girl.

I love the splatter in the background! Though the entire page is gorgeous!

I didn't realize how my blog sort of cuts off the pic. I tried to resize, but it isn't working. If you'd like to see the full layout visit my flickr.
