cosmic crocus


'Cosmic crocus', mixed media, art journal page, A4, sketch paper.


Decided to take the plunge and do an art journal page for one of my nature poems. 

The sketchbook paper in this journal, although I gave it a layer of gesso, turned out to be too thin for collage elements, (the paper under the collaged poem buckled), so perhaps  I will have a look for an A4 watercolour book (with heavy paper) to do a journal of poems.

Its progress, since at least I have started to think of journalling my collection of poems.  That idea developed from using snippets or lines from the poems of others in my previous art journal.  I thought journalling would be a more interesting technique to use rather than more straight-forward illustration techniques.
