Finished Spread: Printed Reminder
I still have the illness, but apparently that's good for my creativity as I have created a new spread from start to finish in a day! I love everything about this spread, except that it's in my private journal, which means that I won't be sharing with anyone in person. Luckily for you, I can show it off online! All collage imagery (7 pieces in spread above) comes from a large coffee table book about National Geographic photography, which I recently purchased for under $6. I recommend it for any collage junkies out there. I found mine in a discount store, but it is also available online at Amazon, here: Odysseys & Photographs. During the writing of this post, it is currently for sale (as used) for $0.95 plus shipping, which is a total steal for this collection of beautiful images.
I used so many different materials to create this spread, including my new fine point Uni-Posca paint pens. (If you haven't read my short review on these, click HERE.) These opaque pens are %100 living up to my expectations! I also used the new KRINK K-90 permanent paint pen, which isn't the greatest to draw with, but makes perfect little dots...and trust me when I say that I could use a tool which does only that! I've been playing around with oil pastels too, and used an incredibly soft yellow-orangeExpressionist pastel by Sakura (which is becoming my favorite brand of non-paint supplies) to do a few markings throughout the page. More supplies include: Gelly Roll pens, Golden fluid acrylic paints, Faber-Castell Pitt pens and , Dr. Ph. Martins Bombay India ink. This spread is truly mixed media!
