A Spirit Art Journal Zine
our Get Messy friend Sarah.
I did the cover above. I used metallic acrylic paints by DecoArt to paint the sun sunbursts/medallions.
For my first page, above, I started with a washi tape background, covering it in a light coat of gesso and then added a doodle and a good but of watercolors. I also added a small bit of aqua washi tape to Vanessa's page on the left, because I'm sneaky like that.
You know I can't go long without adding either a galaxy or a moon to something, so on this page I painted the whole thing with black gesso and then painted on a moon. The quote is one I've seen on pinterest a few times and love.
Sarah says her Spirit Animal is a donkey, so of course I had to draw one. I stared at a few donkeys on pinterest (my go to source of inspiration) and then started sketching. and I love watercolors, so obviously there is a watercolor background.
What theme would you make for a zine? There are so many possibilities!
