This is my first page of my Art Journal. I bought a small watercolour moleskine book to use, and I am going to use it often for whatever takes my fancy on the day - no rules!
Today I based my pages on an advert I saw in the Sunday Mail of a girl listening to the sea through a shell. I love the sea, it makes me feel so peaceful and serene. The colours I chose remind me of the sea too - aqua's and sand colours mixed with sunsets.
I used white gesso, watercolour crayons, gel medium, netting, and cuttings from the paper, so its a collagy effect. I am quite pleased with my first attempt. That's the point of an art journal - there is no right or wrong - you just do whatever you feel like - I love playing.
