get messy: an art journal challenge | 02

Good morning, hopefully you had a great week until now. Today is public holiday in Germany, so I will have time to do a little crafting and art journaling. But before I start, here are three new pages from my art journal.

I like to use the shapes of page elements to journal around it, like here on “exhausted” around the ripped paper fragments. Additionally I use a light grey pen. This way the big elements stay in focus and not the journaling.

Some days I use my art journal to try new techniques to work with materials. Like here on “Experience”, where I worked with colored transparent paper. Additionally I tested, if I could write on it with a black marker and above that with white gel pen. It worked very well and I’m a little bit wiser.

    Really like these pages Sabine. Very inspiring, partly because they seem achievable even if I don’t have many supplies or much crafting experience. And your handwriting on the Epic page is beautiful!

    I really love this. I wish I had the talent like you. And to not have it look like someone threw something all over the pages. Inspiration at it’s best Sabine!

    I love the ripped paper on Exhausted, and I LOVE how you wrote on the lines. That colour scheme is my favourite at the moment.
