Art Journal before & after bunny

We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart.

Since I got so many great comments on my last art journal post (about almost “finished” pages) I thought I’d share one of them that now is completely finished! Once I decided to actually “just do it” it wasn’t that difficult, and I really like it now. It’s a bit more full, and a bit more me. I just added some words and called it a day.

This is how it looked when I showed it to you the first time:

Just as it is

This is how this art journal spread looks now:

My favorite part is my “Bunny on a blue quilt” drawing that I did on brown paper, here it is close up:

    I love these pages, but I REALLY love the bunny. My Sarah (one of my 7-year-old twins) has a ratty old bunny that she’s carried around with her since before she could walk. She’s drawn several sketches of Bunny with pencil, but this might inspire her to add some color!

    Congratulations to the winner. Have fun with Kate’s class! I really enjoy journaling before/after pages, or process pages; they are very inspiring!

    Hanna!! Love these extra embellishments. I’m glad you shared it. Since I’ve been journaling this year, I’ve really learned that I am hesitant to add more things, because I don’t want to ‘mess it up’, but usually, the more full of detail, the more fun it is!

  12. Tara says:

    Love this page! I have so many half finished pages that I need to “just” do

  13. Diana Trout says:
