I’ll be sharing some of my art journal pages in a book. You can find my post explaining it here.
You can also see my other art journal pages on my Instagram account @vrushalipathak. I update there more frequently.
I made this without any printed material. And that’s a kind of challenge I’m accepting – not using any kind of printed paper or image. I’ll be drawing and painting everything by myself. And so far I’ve been very honest to this challenge. Let’s hope I keep it tgat way in the future.
The color combination in this page is soothing to the eyes. Nothing bright. Just neutral and soft. I like the girl and the camera illustration. The girl I drew myself without any reference and the camera I referenced from Pinterest.
I hated a book. I’m not going to take names here so don’t ask. I dislike other books but I hated this one. And I am too connected to books (both as a book with a story written in them and also books as in a collection of page binded together.) And so I couldn’t let the book go. I couldn’t sell it for money which was so much less than it’s actual worth. The time and effort the author took to write it.
And so I decided to just use it. Creatively.
And I decided to make a journal out of it. It is an advantage that I can paint and journal in a bounded book. No need of buying another expensive journal.
So here’s the first thing I painted after I got this idea. Wish me luck!😉
