Van Gogh Journal Pages 17-18
I am so glad this book I made into an art journal is only 7″ x 8.5″! Of course, once I got started, it only took me about an hour to do these two pages. Tomorrow I will post the next two pages. I created a total of four yesterday.
I found some off-white paper that I can copy things from my other Van Gogh books onto, so the paper looks somewhat aged. I really like it!
On the left page I painted the background with fluid acrylics of orange and green, each mixed with matte medium to make them more transparent. Then I used the matte medium to glue down small pieces of floral, blue, and peach tissue papers, and a little music.
Then I copied a picture of a painting Vincent did out of one of my books about him and glued it down.
Next I used some fluid acrylics to create drips, respectfully Gold and Paynes Grey. And that was a fun page!
On the other page I painted the background light and medium shades of green and a little red-orange. I glued down more ephemera, painted over Vincent’s portrait a little, and applied more drips.
I really am enjoying making this journal! I listened to some Moody Blues and Native Ameican flute music while I worked. It was quite nourishing for my soul.
Have a wonderful day! 😀
