More adventures out of the journal



Continuing on my adventures out of the journal and on to canvas. This is the largest canvas I've worked on so far. It is 76 x 61 cm (that's 30 x 24in for my American friends). I approached it in exactly the same way as I would a journal page. There is under collage, stencilling, gelli-printing, removing paint with baby-wipes, applications of paint with fingers and shaping tools. The only thing it doesn't have is journalling.

I've been adding to it for several weeks. I think it might be finished now :)

I'm sharing this with the creatives over at Paint Party Friday. Check out the wonderful work everyone has done this week.

  10. Amazing art work. I was thinking, journaling isn't what it was a few years ago, yet, I want to be involved with it. This is an excellent idea. I want to make it my own, now-a-days they are telling us 'how they want to see it done.' Not my cuppa, I'm more of an original kind of gal. Thanks for the idea. Blessings, Janet, PPF

  11. It's a wonderful painting. Going outside the journal by using the same techniques is a perfect way to transition into a large canvas. I have recently started painting large and am enjoying it very much!
