The title Winter is coming is well known if you too are hooked on TV series that never end. It might be misleading here, but I’m staying indoors a lot watching GoT as my brother calls it and doing embroidery. Misleading perhaps, but at least it’s very cold around here, and white. Winter is already here.
We’re diving right back into Art Journaling, with another peek at what’s happening in mine. Art Journaling is one of my favorite things to do, be it winter or summer or come rain or sunshine… I’ve been painting a lot lately, but this page is a simple cut and paste of magazine pages.
One big magazine image on each side of the spread, this cold lady enduring winter and frosty leafs already dead (see above), that I then did a bit of doodling and writing on top of.
I wanted to share this page to show that simplicity is a great option when you don’t want complicated. It can be something good, and not all pages need to be of the happy, colorful variety. Though remember:
Don’t let them get you down. Be cheeky. And wild. And wonderful.
Love this wintery page with patterned rows too:
It’s so frosty blue, with the pattern on pattern:
These pages are so filled you can’t see that this is one of my altered books, one of my favorite ways to art journal. Here is a tutorial on how I usually get started. Give it a try and see if you like it.
Wishing you a happy Art Journal year 2017! Stay warm my friends.
