art journaling page - singing in the rain


Last weekend I finally got my chance to get back to art journaling.  I’m taking an online course with Moira Richardson called Falling For You.  Every week, Moira gives us a video to watch, our Video Inspiration.  This week it was the famous clip of Gene Kelly, dancing and singing in the rain.

We received a digital stamp of a man "singing in the rain" with instructions to make an image transfer by tracing the image on top of a journal page and create our art journaling around it.  This felt so appropriate for me - we received the first hard rain in over a year this past weekend!

I didn’t realize how easy this was to do.  If you use a hard leaded pencil, the image will appear on the page underneath!  Good thing to know.  My DH showed me another way to copy an image from a sheet: you trace the outline of the image, place it on top of a second piece of paper, then score, or shade, the drawing.  And magically, the outline, where you drew, appears on your second piece of paper.



I traced the lines of this man into my junque journal.  My double-page spread includes the digital stamp, some sheet music, old paper, stamps and ink, stencils, and journaling.  My favorite part of the page is the “brick” sidewalk I made with some stencils I had around the house.

Well, isn't that sychronicity with the rain and all? :) Your pages turned out great! Great idea from your DH too!
