art journal page – inspiration board (journal 52)

inspiration board 6Week 12 of Journal 52 was “Inspiration Board.”  I searched for magazine images and came across a Canadian Geographic with these pictures in it.  The more I looked at them the more I found that they expressed some great inspiration so they became the basis of this page.  I started with a layer of gesso and then a layer of Golden acrylic paint spread on using a palette knife.

inspiration board 3I arranged the images around the page to balance them out and glued them down with Golden Soft Gel medium.  I outlined them with a black oil pastel and smudged the edges with my fingertip.  I added the blue circles with my fingertip as well with some more acrylic paint.

inspiration board 4I doodled around the circles with a white gel pen and added my descriptions around the photos to explain what each one represents in my inspiration board.  Finally I stamped the title on white cardstock and glued it to the top.
