Perfect Is Boring or… In My Art Journal

Don’t you agree?

I did a newspaper image transfer with Gloss Medium & Varnish and then played with black and white acrylic paint – stippling the white onto the black surface which makes it almost look bluish. I wrote the title with a Bamboo Nip Pen- I have mine forever and love using it with paint medium to handwrite title. Here I used acrylic ink.

And some mark making. I love this – it was a great outside the box play for me, which I often do in my art journals but I totally loved the background and I think you might have noticed I applied this to my “On The Flip Side” Canvas.

Here are the supplies I used:

    This page stood out when I watched the flip through and I love the black and white…it really catches my eye and then pushes me back to the lady on the left. Different for you and stunning as well.

    Yes, perfect is boring! Perfect lacks personality & character. I really like what you achieved with your journal. The textures & layers give it a lot of movement. The white markings remind me of a music equalizer or a pulse. Very interesting! Thanks for sharing!

    Really beautiful page. The transfer is perfect and I love the b&w background with those really cool marks…hmmm? On The Flip Side is one of my favorites of yours for 2014!

    Perfect is indeed boring! I really like the markings in white, made me think of a barcode or music equalizer. Very cool!
