Art Journal: Walls=Doors

every wall is a door wm

 

(Click image to enlarge.)

 

Borrowing techniques for this spread from France Papillon, one of my favorite art journalers, this one was really fun because it’s not my “usual” style. After deciding to use the concept of a door, and the suggestion of a brick wall, I found a great quote to go with the page. I think it is true as Ralph Waldo Emerson said, that every wall certainly has the potential for becoming a door!

 

For this spread I used fluid acrylic paints, Pan Pastels, Ranger Rock Candy Crackle Paint, Golden Molding Paste, Distress Stain (Gathered Twigs), Tim Holtz numeral (the number 9 has a family significance right now), and several brads and tiny staples, finished off with some background stamps using Archival Ink.
