She Remembered the Poet….{art journal page}

I’m excited to share my first art journal page, created in my vintage book. 🙂 I found this fantastic 1903 photo of a famous model, modeling eye makeup. I adore her intense look. It brings up so many thoughts about her life. So, I made up my own story.

I think she’s thinking of a deep past relationship, with a Jack Karouac type, a poet and writer, who wooed her with words.

The background is stenciling using an UmWowStudio stencil, as well as punchinella and ink. I used 7 Dots Studio 9th Wave papers, in strips throughout, as well.

I completed the embellishing, with lace that had become detached from a vintage tea towel. I love it’s worn, raggedy appearance.

I’m pleased with how my first page came out, and I can’t wait to work again in my journal. I have alllllllll sorts of vintage photos to use…some with a lot of funny character. 😉
I hope you’re doing well this Monday! Here’s a cheers to a great week ahead……..hopefully.

    I love how you have kept yourself in your art journaling. That sounds weird, but I know so many people who try to be someone else and make pages that follow fashions and not their hearts. I have been thinking that this year I might give art journaling a try. Maybe I shouldn’t call it art journaling, but an experiment book. There is so much I would like to try but I am a chicken and don’t like to mess up. It could be my excuse to go wild 🙂
