Van Gogh Journal Collaged Pages

Hello Friends!

I really enjoyed playing with colors and design on these two pages! First, I glued a tiny sheet of music down. Then I painted over that page and around his portrait on the right with some lemon yellow acrylic mixed with matte medium to make it transparent.

I had copied a couple of his paintings out of another book I have. Then I tore off pieces that I wanted to use. I also copied a photo of his pen and ink drawing called Weaver at the Loom. I used pieces of a copy of his painting Cafe Terrace at Night, some of the cobblestone walkway and the people at the tables, too.

In some places I pasted a few small pieces of my own scrap palette paper with dried acrylic paints on it.

Then on the right page I glued down a portion of a letter he wrote to Theo letting him know what supplies he needed. I tore some orange and blue pieces of tissue paper to glue down. And I painted over his portrait making his eyes look more intense!

Next I found my word “connection” for this year which happened to be printed on a blue card from a poetry magazine. After I tore it out and glued it, I wrote three synonyms: unite, relation and join.

Lastly, I finished with the very tips of a brush making whispy marks around the page and painting a few lavender lilies.

Have a wonderful day! 😀

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
