Hi dear crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing my new project Be Fearless Art Journal Page that I created for the More Than Words challenge. The subject of the challenge this month was Grunge and the word Fearless. Exactly the challenge for me!
Be Fearless Art Journal Page
I love the gunge style, which is sometimes confused with steampunk (which I also love). Grunge is more about strong and dark colors, distressing and a sort of a punk look. It can be disorganized, graffiti, in your face look that is translated to a project. I decided to create an art journal page, because I thought it is the most appropriate medium for such an approach.
So I started with some spraying and then added stenciling, all in black, brown and strong reds. Then I drew a face and painted it in a yellow-green color so it will give the maximum contrast to the background. Finally I added some more stenciling as her hair and some lighter color patterns to add a little soft touch.
I wanted to add a face to my page because that's where the fearless part comes in. A face with that color is definitely "in your face" and goes so well with the title of the page: Be Fearless. I personally believe that we should never live our lives in fear or let fear govern our decisions. If I had listened to fear I would have never left my job and become an artist and a teacher full time 🙂
This was a really fun challenge to create and I hope you liked my Be Fearless Art Journal Page!
