Today I'm sharing a photo tutorial on the last page spread in my art journal. This Art Journal Page: Eyes came out really colorful and it was a lot of fun creating it. If you think I drew these eyes well you would be wrong... I printed them.
Art Journal Page: Eyes
First I started like I always do. For this page I used a lot of acrylic paints and different patterns of stencils to create a colorful pattern on the page. I try to use small and large patterns with contrasting colors. This way it comes out looking like a big mess but this is how it's supposed to look. To add even more images that are too small for stencils I use stamps with different colors of ink. Make sure to use permanent ink so it will not react with the paint later.
Next I glued the eyes with gel medium. After that I drew the tears with a pencil and painted around them. I used a small brush to make sure I'll paint in the lines. These are the same paints I used with the stencils. I didn't paint a thick layer so the pattern is still slightly visible.
Finally I drew the tears lines again with a black pen and added some doodling around the eyes. I added the quote to the page on little pieces of white paper.
I'm really happy with this page and I think it's a great finish to my art journal!
