Art Journal – Life

This is the latest completed page in my Moleskine.  I started with various shades of green acylic paint.  The collage elements went on next.  Most of them were altered.  The picture in the upper left corner was extremely altered with an emery board.  I like the effect it gave to the picture.  The emery board method works best on pieces that are thicker in weight than most magazine pages.  This one came from a catalog of expensive women’s handbags.  I bet one could use very fine sandpaper(I’ll have to try that).   I further muted most of the pages with Titan Buff paint by Golden.  Last of all, I altered the page with my photo program after scanning the page.  The original is actually more green than it appears here.
