Visual journalism 101

I have just started an online class by Pam Carriker at Artful Gathering and this is the first journal page I have created following her guidance.


Here are the various stages it went through before it was finally finished. Firstly, the background created with acrylic paints and stencils.


Then collage elements.


The next stage was the doodling.


And then came the journalling. The last verse of a poem by Philip Larkin, in this case.


To create the finished piece, I then added some colour with water-soluble crayons and added some definition with charcoal pencils.
