I'm way behind on sharing the art journal swap pages I've been doing...but let's just forget that and jump right in to the most recent one I did. :)
The person who's journal I had is a cat person. I'm a cat and dog person so that worked for me! Here's the page I came up with from a paraphrase of a great quote I found not too long ago by Martin Delany, the original quote is:
"If we treated everyone we meet with the same affection we bestow upon our favorite cat, they, too, would purr."
I love the compassion in that quote!
I started off by putting some washi tape around the boarder of the pages and then gessoing the them. Next I did some imperfect image transfers using magazine pages and Americana Decoupage.
After that was dry I used some water soluble wax pastels to make marks on the page.
