For the latest Oddball Art Co challenge I decided to create a Art Journal page. There’s nothing more freeing than just working in your art journal. You just get out some paints and see where things will go and if you mess up, you just run with it and make it something you do like. This art journal page was for Oddball Art Co’s Facebook Challenge. The challenge was to just use a Digi image and I used image called “Big Eye Girl Image No. 18” for my page.
I started my page by first using a hexagon stencili and some modeling paste. I knew I wanted that texture as one of my first layers. I then started adding some Hero Arts Neon Purple from a paint dauber, Heidi Swapp Color Shine spray in Mustard, and Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Citron. After I layed down some lime green and teal acrylic paints. I used a variety of stencils and paints, and stamps to keep building the layers as I worked. Regular white gesso helped me to smooth out areas that I didn’t feel like initially flowed well together. My favorite addition to the page was Mod Podge-ing down some tissue paper with clocks and texts. I felt like it just added another interesting layer to the piece. The title “From chaos comes clarity” comes from a 311 song lyric. I stamped out the words, “from” and “comes” and the words “chaos” and “clarity” are Jenni Bowling rub ons. I really like that when I look at the page each time, I feel like you can still see something you didn’t notice before.
