art journal page: intermingle


Even though I was trying to be intuitive with my artwork (like Teesha Moore suggests), I worked hard on the left side of this journal spread before I was completely happy with it.  I followed Teesh'a advice and outlined the page with strips of paper - I've done that before with washi tape.  Underneath my tree-hugger is a man's body.  Yes there is!  I changed his/her sweater out several times by gluing images on top of each other.  Finally, I gave up on the torso and in went the tree.  And it felt right!



There's lots of things going on with this collage.  But I felt it was done, so out came the camera for a photo (I was thinking of using it for WW).  When I looked at the picture, the page seemed empty on the top left.


So I went back to my table and added falling squares.  The squares and circles are intermingling, like X and Y chromosomes.  Hence, my haiku:

"  

Intermingle is
A delicious word to say
And feel in a crowd.

That is what I like about art journaling. I paint a page and keep at until it feels right. And then maybe add more later!
