Strength and Masking Tape

Over the weekend I learned that one of my sister's friends was sitting in her car and was hit by a drunk driver. She died in the hospital last night, she was only 19. More bad news followed, my ex-fiance, David, told me his Army buddy was the victim of a roadside bomb and lost both of his legs. It's hard to realize how fragile we are as creatures on this earth. I needed some strength so I invited my inner-super hero to my art journal.

The left page: Another magazine silhouette, colored and outlined in watercolor crayons. The background was painted purple, stamped and then gessoed over.
The right page: Covered in layers of masking tape, then painted purple and finally doodled over in a Sakura white gelly roller.


  1. Beautiful, beautiful page!! The side with the gelly roll pen is very stunning! All of your art journal pages are delightful, BTW.

  2. Why thank you! I'm really pleased with the texture I got from the masking tape =)
