This week I have been working in Kim's journal for the circle journal/round robin. Kim's theme is 'Monochromatic faces in the crowd.' See here for Claudia's take on it.
As you can see, I chose purple for my single colour and then laid down a background with acrylic paint, stencils, and bits of collaged book pages that you might just be able to see peeking through. The theme made me think about crowds of faceless people with one standing out. I wanted to create a strong, determined face using a stamp for the eyes and Copics for the outlining and shading.
Then I thought about the other way to stand out in a crowd - just be yourself - which reminded me of the Judy Garland quote. And the page was done. I just want to do something on the reverse, and then the journal will wing its way to Shel in Arizona for her take on the theme.
