This is the last month of 12 Months in View starting with An Introduction to February.
I think the most important thing I learned at the Make It Personal workshop was to 'not think'. It wasn't a new concept to me but putting it into practice has always been difficult. However I managed it and took the same approach to this journal page.
I knew that I wanted to base the page on the words 'The day the music died' but hadn't any picture in my mind of how I would get to it.
I looked through a pile of papers I had and found some sheet music, a dictionary page and some stars that I had cut out from something else I'd done.
I glued the music paper and the dictionary paper into my journal.
I scraped Gesso over the page with an old credit card and then stuck down the stars.
I sprayed Dylusions Inks over the page. The paper the stars had been cut from had been a play sheet painted with acrylic paints so the stars resisted the ink. The gesso reacts with the inks so they are paler than if they are sprayed directly onto paper.
I wrote the words with a black Copic pen and then wrote again with an orange crayon. I added the black and the white lines to the page.
I didn't think or plan while I was making the page and I am really pleased with the result.
Thanks for stopping by.
