Art Journal Page 9/14/14 - Circle Girl


A fun Sunday afternoon spent working in my art journal. I found this brilliant circle tutorial on the Me, With My Head in the Clouds blog and I was totally inspired. I used some of the circles I did here on this journal page and I have an envelope full of others to use on later projects. SO much fun!!

For this page I followed the same steps as the page I did a couple of days ago. I think I love doing these cut out girls so much because it's like playing with paper dolls. It really does just feel like play to me.

I painted her head on a recipe page I printed a long time ago and never actually made. My daughter looked over my shoulder while I was painting the fun purple hair and said, "So does that mean you're never going to make those pretzel bites because they look good!" :) Ah, the things we sacrifice for art!!

And here she is hanging out with her neighbor. I'm never quite sure if doing full page spreads like this makes the pages too busy. I try to have some elements that tie them together a little--in this case it's the black polka dot paper and smudges of creamy yellow paint. But I still think I like the pages better on their own.
