Get Messy Thursday - Panda Bears
For my first page this week I started out by finger painting a really quick background with acrylic paints, and then I ripped (that sounds so violent) the panda bear out of a National Geographic magazine and taped him into my journal.
This is such a simple page for me, but I actually love it. I used a Tombow Dual Brush Pen to do the lettering and swirls.
Page 2 is on the opposite side of the panda bear page, and I also had done a messy finger painting background on the left page here.
I love reusing art! For example, I drew this girl in my sketchbook months ago, and then I made a photocopy of her to use here in my journal this week.
I wrote a few words to describe my current self.
My last page for the week isn't finished yet. I started it with the gelli print on the right and added the pink paint and then my photo and map, but then I wasn't sure where to go next.
I think I need a bit of inspiration for it, so until then it will wait unfinished. ;)
I do it more often than I would like. I hate leaving projects unfinished...
It is the last week in the current Get Messy Art Journal season, so I think I may take a 2 week break from art journaling, but you'll start seeing pages from me again after the new season starts in August!
