Art Journal Page: Join Us

This is the second entry in my book. Still feeling my way with this style of long landscape page format. No doubt I'll iron out the wrinkles in design, the more I make.

Anyway, this is influenced by the quirky and fun artwork of Hattie Stewart and Alana Dee Haynes. I just love the look of doodling over photos. It's highly addictive to grab a Posca pen and scribble away. Okay, it's a bit rough around the edges and this will improve with practice.

The background was coated in red acrylic ink. I stuck down my doodled face and armed with more Paint Pens, I wrote "Join Us" and coloured it in. With a thin black paint pen I doodled the border and cracks. 

I'm certainly going to try this again, especially now I've learnt a few tricks along the way and the pitfalls to avoid haha.

Hope you have a creative, relaxing weekend x
