Art Journal: Layers II

· Read in about 1 min · (129 words) ·

Yesterday, you saw a partially finished page from my 6-ring journal. This is the same page, and I think I’m finished… or almost?

I needed a focal point for the page, so I added the octopus stamp. I actually previewed it with the octopus in various positions, but I finally settled on this one. It seemed to want to be tucked into the torn corner of a piece that was already on the page.

I then used Inktense pencils to add to it’s coloring and in the area immediately around it. That made it stand out more on the page and draw in the eye.

I’m considering adding more at the bottom. But I haven’t hit on exactly the right thing yet. If I do, I’ll post the results!
