The Blank Page and How to Face It!
Art Challenge: Under Paper (paper on your work table that gets all inky while you work)
Journal Prompt: What Lies Beneath?
Under paper? Really? Before I got started I checked out some of the featured artists to see how they did this. I considered starting from scratch and creating an "under paper". Then I found a magazine page that I had used to paint something on so I just used that. It's not pretty but what the heck.
I started by scribbling around the edge of the page with a brush marker and then a different shade marker and a gel pen. I stamped the swirls all over the page, glued down a scrap of lace, then glued down my "under paper". I used a little bit of washi tape on the corners of the paper too. I glued down some buttons and the bit at the top with the journal prompt written on it. Then with a pencil I added a thought at the top and bottom in sloppy hand writing.
