Creativity is not a talent. It is a way of operating.
Art Journal Caravan page – Believe
It took me quite a while to start making this page. Believe is such a ‘scrapbooky’ word, and all the ideas I had seemed trite, or else would involve more journalling than I could fit in a whole book. In the end, I decided to use this quote by Frank Lloyd Wright which is something of a mantra for a ‘positive thinking’ junkie like myself.
I started by compiling a digital background using papers from some of my kits at SBG and the Big Backs Bundle and printed it out.
I cut the arrows, letters, heart strip and flowers from pieces of K&Co scrapbooking paper that came free with a magazine subscriptions, and added details and shading to them with markers and coloured pencils.
I then worked the text onto the background using the Pigma markers, embellished with a white marker, and shaded the background with coloured pencils.
I drew the picture of Frank Lloyd Wright using a photo I found on Google Images as reference, and shaded it with markers and pencil.
Finally I attached the cut paper pieces to the page with a glue stick.
