I’ve really enjoyed being a part of the Art Journal Craftalong and trying all the new techniques and materials inspired by the videos we try there. Recently, I tried to incorporate some of these concepts and ideas to 4x6 art pieces instead of journal pages.
These are the first ones I did. Very Alisa Burke inspired. The woman’s face is actually my grandma.
Then, I decided to play with some “blackout” effect. Definitely inspired by an art journal page from Alisa Burke.
And “white out” effect. These were inspired by one of the art journal videos we did. I did one with acrylic inks and a white a spiral:
And acrylic inks and stamped circles. I love the white ink for the lettering on this one:
Two more inspired by a an art journal video. The big circles used scrap paper from other art projects, which was cool and fun. I also decorated circle sticker labels for these.
And one last one just playing around with materials and methods:
I had a lot of fun making these and I can’t wait to play around some more outside my art journal. Thanks for looking!
