The Black Color Chaos Art Journal
The white journal was pretty challenging because I love using lots of color in my art, so I assumed that black would be just as hard. Some of the pages were tough, but not as tough as I was expecting. Overall these pages came together on their own.
As I was the last one working in this journal, I got to fill in all of the empty pages! Being last was quite fun.
The first page in the journal was still empty, so I added in the moon phases card, and on the opposite page I added in this lovely lady from my sketchbook, chopped off the top of her head and added a few thoughts.
The magazine image was already on the next page, I just added all of the crazy black stickers.
I did the right page below, a bit of drawing + watercolors on gesso.
Since the right page below already said "take me to your leader", how could I not add a space-y page of my own next to it?
I know Julia loves tea (maybe as much as I do), so I added in this teacup page on the left.
I cut this earth clipart out of a vintage space book, and glued it into the journal. Then I decided to add a bit of color. I couldn't help myself, I love color.
A special page just for Jules, with random scraps.
As the page on the right already mentioned Summer, I decided to go with that theme for my page on the left. So I doodled the diver and added a photo of a galaxy for her to dive into.
And you know I had to have a watercolor galaxy in this journal, so here it is!
It is hard to tell in the photo, but the moon is foiled, so it's shiny.
I managed to work a little bit of color into this black journal, without going crazy with it, I think. :)
