I haven't been using my 2013 art journal for about a month. Either I’ve been making new journals (and not using them yet) or using index cards to express myself. Because I had a little time to myself Saturday morning, I decided to draw a face on a blank page in my journal. I'm surprised to see the proportions came out correctly - usually I make big fat lips!
|basket of words|
I found this phrase, "Don't be so hard-headed" in a basket I keep for words and phases only. For some reason, it seemed to fit my mood. But then, what does that mean? So of course, I had to look it up. Yahoo answers says hardheaded is someone who won't change their minds easily. I guess that's me, but I've been feeling more like I'm carrying the weight on the world, and I don't have to. Or maybe I do? You see the dilemma I'm in...
I went into my scrap box and found some magazine images I liked, and glued them down. There’s those big lips that I usually draw! Isn’t that amazing - I didn’t even realize I had chosen them until I had already written about them! I surrounded my face (is that me?) with the insides of an envelope, and finish the page off with different kinds of watercolor (regular, pencils and crayons).
