Okay, it’s Day 5 of Jenniebellie’s (7 art journal pages in 7 days) challenge. I’m officially getting tired of working on the same seven pages every day. But the end is in sight.
Today I selected one of the two remaining techniques/methods from my box:
Ephemera, it is! That’s usually a fun technique and is very intuitive. My partner just gave me some ephemera from his trip to Phoenix this week (light rail passes, movie tickets, etc.) and I have plastic shoe boxes full of other small items so off I went to affix ephemera to my pages. Here’s what I ended up with.
I added part of a menu from a retirement complex, a movie theater stub, and some ribbon across the top of both.
I added words from Tim Holtz cardstock; printed words; and the tops of two note pads from the dollar store.
I added cacti from Phoenix light rail ticket stubs; a piece of scrapbook paper with circles on it; the Holiday Inn logo from their notepaper; a punched watercolor circle for the sun/moon; and printed text.
Well, that was fun. Tomorrow I will be using a pen to shade and doodle on the pages (the last technique) and Monday I will do whatever I need to finish up them up. That might include more paint or collage or journaling or shading or fixing up boo-boos. Can’t wait.
I hope you find something creative to do today too!
