Escape from memory

This art journal page truly was a journal page…although after I spilled words all over the page in random thoughts I covered it up or at least obscured the writing enough as not to be read.  The words were just for me and once written they could be forgotten. A mind dump, if you will.

The page has so many layers…I went in with a thought and then took it too far…way to busy of background. I just kept at it until it felt right. I used a Pitt pen and white gesso to create the striped lines.

Washi tape has been a go-to supply lately. I like to tear it before applying to the page so it appears more random…spreading a bit of paint over the washi helps to push it into the background and make a more cohesive look.

My love affair with circles shines through on this page. I have saved caps from bottles and jars in a variety of sizes that I dip into paint for mark making. The imperfection of these marks is the beauty to me.

Linking up with Art Journal Journey.

  1. That beautiful page shows how meditative Art Journaling can be! It’s a wonderful way to play and heal the soul …
    I like the washi as well as I don’t get any sticky fingers with it..sticky fingers are something I don’t like so much.But it’s a little bit too expensive for my taste-at least the finer designs- here in my country… so I take only some little bits the most time.. I am way too lazy to make my own washi… would be good ..but too much work..but maybe- I will set it onto my To Do list at least- or better on my wish list for christmas???
    Thank you for such a beautiful page to the theme Halle. I am in love with the colors — all your marks and the black and white with a hint of red touches…
    really super!

  2. Another wonderful piece Halle and the quote. I don’t think 5 more minutes would be enough for me. But I’d take it. 🙂 Hugs-Erika
