Sometimes I get bogged down trying to imitate another artist's technique. Not so with Diana's approach. She cheers you on and gives you permission to "Take pride in messy, murky process pages."
She says: "This is step one in letting go." I need that step and whenever I just jump in, amazing things do find their way on to my page.
Here are some process pages that I made this week, while nursing my cold.
In this process, Diana encourages you to choose only seven to ten images. The two page spread below really surprised me. I didn't try to arrange the images (too much).
I let them fall onto the page and then I glued them in. After gluing, I chose one color to wash over the whole layout. Then some words popped into my head and I wrote them on the page. Be. Resting. Path. Course. Way. Love. Joy. Peace. I scribbled some marks around the page and added some yellow to accent the orange wash.
As I placed my treasures on the page, a vertical layout presented itself. I didn't paint until the following day, and I highlighted words with a gold paint pen.
