Crusade No. 27 is called
She challenged us to explore
a shape: think positive & negative,
large & small...
These Art Journal pages were first painted
with watercolors for the background.
Primitive bird shapes were cut
from paper and then pastels
applied to the bird shape. I laid
the shape onto the journal page
and rubbed the pastel from
the stencil onto the journal
page, creating a stencil of the negative
shape. Hand-carved bird stamps
were added & quotes in calligraphy.
I also included the stencil shapes
by gluing them to the page as well.
