This is a fun, layered page that includes several different kinds of elements combined into one project.
The background was made using acrylic paint applied with a baby wipe. I applied the black face and some black half-circle shapes onto the page using acrylic paint applied with a sponge through stencils. Next, came layers of washi tape adhered here and there and trimmed with a craft knife to create crisp edges where needed. The black border is also made with washi tape. Lastly, I adhered word stickers and edged around them with a black pen. The word “Observations” is a rub-on.
I rarely have a long-term plan for an art journal page in the beginning; rather, I let the piece take me one step at a time through a process of transformation until I like the way it looks.
