New Art Journal Page with LOTS of Materials!

This has been an ongoing process since last school year!  I put some things down originally, did not like how the layout was coming together, so I returned to the page and added more.  Then, I toned down the craziness with some white paint.

Some of the materials I used were:
  • photocopies of old artwork
  • scrapbook paper
  • paper towels with Metallic watercolor paints
  • a scrap with a written phrase on it that I found on the ground in my classroom... isn't that beautiful?
  • decorative tape
  • collage imagery
  • a sticker
  • gelli printed papers
Below is a picture of how the page looks with my art journal spread open.

Here are some close up views:

Some great links for you to check out:
  1.  Check out our Featuring Magazine Campaign BLOG.
  2.  Here is a cool article about setting up tweets by NatashaMay.  I'm not the best at using Twitter, so maybe this is something I should try.
  3.  Great money & future planning advice for high schoolers!
  4.  I just love Brian Kasstle's art.
  5.  These adorable photographic portraits of well-loved stuffed animals.

I love those spotty cutouts with the blue smudged shadows. They add great depth to the page.
