Art Journal Page – “6 7 8 9”

Art Journal 6789

I didn’t like this page at first, but it’s grown on me!

The background was painted white with acrylic paint applied with a baby wipe.  Next, I applied Distress inks through hexagonal and numbered stencils with a blending tool.  I doodled inside some of the shapes, and journaled around others.  Lastly, I scribbled a border around the edge of the page with a black pen.  To add a bit more dimension, I shaded around the number shapes using a light tan coloured Pitt marker with a brush tip.

Not every page is a favourite — and that’s ok.  Art journaling is about experimenting, playing, and creating something that seems “right” at the moment.  If I like it afterwards, that’s great!  But even if I don’t, I let it be so.  By giving myself permission to NOT like a particular page, I often find that I appreciate it more in the end.
