Art Journal – Once Upon a Time


“Once Upon a Time” — that’s how every good story begins!  I made this art journal page by rubbing orange and yellow Distress inks through several stencils (right side of the page), and some smeared acrylic paints on the left side.  I collaged a found image on the left side with a phrase torn from a magazine.  I used bits of torn washi tape and real postage stamps to soften the edges of the image.  I applied several strips of washi tape to top and bottom, edged the corners with black pastels, and added a few black dots with a sharpie.  I used rub-on words on top of the image, and rubber stamped cancellation marks onto the postage stamps.  How does your story begin?
