Sometimes music can inspire but most of the time it helps me find the words to say what can't always come out of my mouth. Knowing this I decided to put together a 'Creative Path Soundtrack'. Music that helps me see clearly who I am and what I'm worth. Music that makes me believe anything is possible. Music to listen to when I can't remember why I'm doing this art journey to begin with. Music to feel by and dance to...music to live.
Sadly, I didn't do a step by step show of how I made the art journal page because I wasn't sure what I where I was going with it until it was done. But here is the final product:
I did the art journal page first using (very watery) acrylic paint then added salt to give it texture. I spattered black paint with a mask over the main area. Using a roller I added gold paint over the whole. I used a credit card to add even more black paint around the main area so it could *pop*.
With a butterfly stencil I painted in the black butterfly at the top then used more of the diluted acrylic paint in the main area to make a brighter/darker butterfly. I scanned that image into my computer. Using it as a template I added the text and the veins on the butterflies.
I then used photo editing software (Microsoft Office Picture Manager and Windows Paint) to create the front and back of the music CD. I added the song tracks and titles then printed them out. I burned the music on a CD and the final product goes into the binder with everything else.
