My friend Jane gave our art journal group the challenge of stacking.
stacking text and tangles,
stacking colors with any of the above.
Jane showed some examples of stacking,
and in a couple pictures she showed drawings she had made in her wall book.
I thought, I have a wall book that I rarely use.
So I pulled it out and tangled the stacks you see above
in the page on the right.
It started out as a blank brick wall.
(This is an actual two-page spread in the book.)
I started at the bottom and worked my way up.
I love the way it turned out.
Looks like that art could be real graffiti.
(Fourth tangle up from the bottom,
is one I made up for this page.
I'm calling it Box It Up.
I'll post step-outs for it in tomorrow's post.)
In case you wondered, and even if you didn't, hahaha!
from the bottom up, the tangles are:
Here is the wall book, which I have been calling by the
wrong name for the past couple weeks!
I got mine at Amazon,
(I mean, really, is there any where else?)
Walls Notebook by Sherwood Forlee.
I enjoyed that stacking stuff so much I decided to do a second page.
I decided to go with graffiti circles and tangles that draw the eye to that post rising from top to bottom of the page.
