Today I went back to the NaNoJouMo song-title prompts. Today’s was “How Soon Is Now” by The Smiths and was featured in the 1998 film, The Wedding Singer. The song title reminded me of a clock; also two lines of the chorus are used over and over and gave me the idea for both the character and the text in my art journal page.
I used an acrylic painted background that I had scanned and printed out for this page (so that it formed a smooth base for the collage). I cut out several disparate elements from magazines and collaged them to create a human-like character. I created a clock out of the round piece behind the head. I hand-lettered two lines from the song’s chorus and the title/group name on the page. I finished by doodling the blue playing card and other areas on the page.
I love the bright colors and how quickly the journal page came together. I’m now more than 40% through this challenge and I may have made it past that ‘block’ that inevitably comes part way through any daily challenge like this.
I hope you have met your creative goals today too.
