Mixed media Art Journal Page: Imagined

People ask me a lot about how I come up with ideas for an art journal page and how I think and find the right quotes. I have two ways of going about doing that. Sometimes I have a quote in mind, or I saw a quote I like on line and I start with that and build my page around it. Sometimes I have a technique I want to do, or scheme of colors I want to try and after I have an idea in my head i look for a quote to compliment that.

This was the case in this art journal page. I started with creating the page first with an ink filler and water technique. then I added the word's tape and continued from there. While I was working I got an idea to add a quote about imagination. I can't tell why that particular subject popped into my just did.

I think art journaling is all about the creative process and the self expression so I like to add letters and words in my own handwriting. This way I get a chance to play with different types of fonts and try them out on paper. I also added some doodling which is also a lot of fun and adds a fun vibe to the page.
