Art Journal Page with Depth and Visual Interest

Journal Page Beauty Shot

Hi! It's Laura Bray. I love to art journal, don't you? My art journal is a place where I can try out new art techniques, collect quotes, and deal with my daily emotions. 

I tried out a new technique that allows me to play with the focal points just as I would with a camera. By blurring some of my flowers and sharpening others, my journal page background has depth and interest. And it's so easy to do!

Journal Page Step One

I started by drawing some simple flower shapes with Gelatos® randomly all over a page. Then I used a foam wedge to rub the color into the page and slightly blur the flower image.

Journal Page Step Two

Next, I went back in and added more flower shapes but this time, I didn't rub the color in. This gave me the look of sharp and in focus flowers. Again, I spread them randomly, even overlapping some of my blurred flowers.

Finally, I picked a meaningful quote and lettered it into my art journal using Pitt Artist's Pens.

That's a great look. Smart way to do it too.
