Where do you get your ideas for Art?
Well, sometimes I get ideas for art but the act of creation is the hard part. I think I know what I want and then when faced with the page, I freeze up... doubt myself and my choices. I get on Pinterest or other artist's blogs and start comparing myself. It's a no-win situation! It wastes time and cause procrastination (something I don't need more of btw). I start doubting my abilities, my creativity, and my ability to come up with something new. That's no good!
For this page, I started with the journaling! I knew what I wanted to say and typed it out on vellum to be layered over my art. I just didn't know what my final product would look like. Once I saw the lightbulb mask, I KNEW it would light up my page! I started by tracing the outside shape with pencil.
I then filled in that shape with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents Gesso.
