She Is An Explorer

She is an explorer, she is curious, she loves to create pages in an art journal.  This page was done on watercolor paper, 140lb. in a handbound journal with the pamphlet stitch.  I prepared this page for a class I was teaching and the word prompt was curiosity.  It also is created with silhouette images, book text, handwritten words, and some mark making.  First layer is paint applied with a baby wipe, smudged around the page, and soft edges.  On non porous paper I dripped alcohol inks, and then blended them together.  After drying the paper I cut out squares and with an acrylic ink pen spelled out the word curiosity, and cut into squares.  I highlighted the letters with white dots then attached the letters to my page with a UHU glue stick, the best glue stick around! Color, line, silhouettes, words, expressions from heart, these are the ingredients in an art journal page.  Let me know what you think.  Hope to see you in class so I share some ideas for your creative journey!
