As mentioned in a previous blog post, I got a strange book kit for Christmas called Wide Open, its a book full of ideas and inspirational prompts for journalling and sketchbooking. Ive decided to set myself a personal challenge of working through the prompts one by one and making a page (or two) with the theme suggested.
The first card I pulled out of the stack was about ‘The Body As Art’ – basically you have to think of a way to use your own body to create a journal page somehow – you can do anything you wish so long as your body is involved in some way and featured.
I took the easy way out – or at least I think I took the easy way out! I decided to draw around both my left and my right hand with a marker directly on the pages and then inside my hands I seperated the hand into different blocks of bright colours. Then I used a black pen to draw lines around those colours to section it off. Then I proceeded to make 2 large Zentangles within the shape of my hands. I finally finished the pages by adding the journalling words and doodles you can see below:
