Art Journal Speed Process: "Ink Blot Buffalo"
Forgive the tardiness of this post, as I was involved in a pretty intense car accident that left me so shaken and exhausted that I collapsed on my sofa upon return instead of blogging to you, dear follower. (I have a feeling you might be understanding in realizing that the situation was an unexpected incident which could alter anyone's schedule.) But I thank you for your patience and present you with almost 20 minutes of an art journal speed process video!
I created the above spread as my first week's participation in the Get Messy group (discussed in this blog post), which offered multiple prompts as part of the current week for this six week season. The theme for these six weeks is introspection, and I chose to do an inkblot type design with my acrylic paint. The Get Messy prompt inspired a great many of us to see what we would find in our homemade "inkblots," which mimics the famous Rorschach test. I've done this before, as you can see in the photo below, but it's been a long time since!
This video took me quite a bit of time to put together, as it not only shows an entire start-to-finish process for my newest art journal page, "Ink Blot Buffalo," but I also took the time to add commentary though out the video. This commentary provides you with my rationale during the creation of this spread, detail of the art supplies used, and gives you a little insight on how it is that I create my spreads. The video is sped up to four times the original, so there is a lot of content crammed into it! Enjoy!
More photos of the "Ink Blot Buffalo" art journal spread can be seen below.
I hope you gained a little insight and a lot of inspiration, and I will see you Friday with a new post! Feel free to contact me before then by leaving me a comment below; I'd love to hear your thoughts!!!
