Art Journal Page #4

This weeks art journal page was quite simply, just for Max.

#4~ Follow my instinct 

This week I really didn't feel like doing a page. I just couldn't think of what to do after making a few (accidental) ugly pages over the weekend. The colours I picked didn't work and I felt stuck~ so I thought to myself 'just follow your instinct'. I hadn't done an art journal page for Max yet, I didn't feel I was ready. It's still really hard to think about him not being with us any more. But today I knew it was time to honour him in my art journal. Nothing overly fancy or even particularly tidy but something meaningful to me. That is all.

I started off with one hideous yellow & purple page (what was I thinking?) so in a desperate attempt to cover it up I layered up some gesso. Result: saved! Kind of.

I used a brown paper bag to create a solid coloured background to write the his name. I used tipex/whiteout/twink/correction pen (everyone calls it something different) & a gold pen.

This really cute little tag was from some of our awesome friends wedding and I just thought it was perfect because he really was so incredibly sweet.

The final part, but most important part was this poem that my aunty shared with me. It was written by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Overall? I'm not assessing what I liked and didn't like about this page this week. This week was about just making a page in memory of Max & following my instinct.

Materials used:
Craft Paint
