Art Journal: Artists' Book 2

· Read in about 1 min · (130 words) ·

We started out with a list of prompts that each artist could follow, or ignore. There were six categories:

  • Patron Saint
  • Inner Spirit
  • Princess
  • Shrine
  • Element
  • Self Portrait

Each artist could follow all, some or none of these. The general hope was to have 12 “pages” from each artist. These would then be mounted, back to back, in the order of my choice.

This first layout is by Judy Wood. She creates beautiful, romantic, abstract art using watercolor and mixed media techniques.

Judy chose to make all of her pages smaller than the given size to provide interest, and contrast. I made the choice to mount them back to back, and placed various papers surrounding them. Judy added more art to the additional papers.
