I bought Art Journal Freedom by Dina Wakley on Friday. I'd been trying to reserve it at the library for a while but not getting anywhere. Then it turned up in the book shop we frequent more or less weekly and I was able to look at it. It didn't take long to decide that it would be an invaluable addition to my library. Books are expensive here in Australia, so I like to consider carefully which to buy.
So here is a page inspired by Dina Wakley. So much white space! So not my normal style. But I like it!
The page started with gesso and a scraping of acrylic. Then I sprayed some watercolour ink, dripped some acrylic ink, and drew circles with water-soluble graphite. A bit of stamping, a collaged silhouette, and some journalling along the drips. Done!
I'm looking forward to trying out some more of the exercises in the next few weeks.
