Art Challenge: Repeating Elements
Journal Prompt: It's Worth Repeating
This page ended up being way different than what my original vision was but I don't mind because I was happy with how it all turned out.
What I'm finding totally fascinating with these last few pages is how you get to a point where the background you're making starts to look really ugly and you think the whole thing is going nowhere. Then, before you know it, it's turned in to something pretty spectacular.
Another thing that is truly amazing me is that I'm able to get past that point where it gets really ugly. That's the point when every other project I've ever done would end up in the trash. Had I only known that it wasn't a mistake I was making it was just incomplete.
So this is my page for this week. My repeating elements are circles. I used tissue paper again on this page. The face was drawn on tissue paper before being glued to the page. I also got to a point where everything was looking too bright and bold and I wanted a softer look. First I tried adding a layer of gesso but it still looked too bright so I took a sheet of tissue paper and glued that over the entire page. It softened everything up to where I liked it.
The picture isn't the greatest. I tried getting one with my camera and then I tried with my phone. Unfortunately I didn't have enough light and I was running out of time to get a picture for today's post. You get the idea thought.
