The February Challenge on the ‘Mixed Media Art Journal‘ facebook group is to create a page using repeat mirror images. I was initially stuck for ideas, wondering how I was going to go about this for my page then suddenly inspiration hit and off I went!
As always I have taken several photographs of the step by step process of how I created my page incase you too fancy having a go.
Step One: I divided my journal page into 4 sections in preparation using pencil and ruler.
Step 2: On a sheet of scrap paper I drew a rough leaf shape using a black marker.
Step 3: I cut out the shape with scissors to create a template.
Step 4: I drew round the leaf shape four times using a pencil to give me a visual idea of what my page would look like
Step 5: I completely covered bottom right section with torn book paper, and the bottom left section was first painted with yellow acrylic then stencilled over with pink dots.
Step 6: More stencilled circles where added to the bottom left section and I painted the top left section with purple acrylic.
Step 7: More painted circles added.
And more circles….
Then some more…
