Art Journal: Free-flowing Mind
The topic was “Free-flowing Mind.”
Free –flowing mind is very important for me because I tend to get stuck if I think about something too much or get too serious.
The key is to stay open-minded and easy-going.
For the background, I first used Pan Pastel. I like the translucent colors provided by Pan Pastel.
Then I drew lines in colored pencils and markers.
I wrote the words and did some collage of butterflies and stars.
I first called it done at that point, but the pastel and colored pencil art was somewhat static.
So I drew the lines again in acrylics to create more movement and also colored the butterflies in acrylics.
This was the art journal page of three years ago under the same topic.
I collaged the washi paper and stuff, stamped and drew in gansai, the Japanese traditional colors, so it was more or less like “West meets East,” which I thought represented “free-flowing mind.”
Thanks for stopping by.
