For those of you who haven't been following this week, I'm sharing pages from my Stillman & Birn Zeta journal that I destroyed because I wasn't happy with my work or because I used the page as a test. Once I destroyed the work by covering it with paint or marker or medium, I then recreated it as another work.
I was playing with gel medium over certain areas of a Zentangle-Inspired piece. I had to set it aside, and I thought the medium was dry enough to close the book. A few weeks later, when I tried to open it, the pages had stuck together and part of the paper's surface tore when I separated them.
The textured you get from torn paper is one I like, so I switched gears, took out my Montana Markers and painted over the tangle patterns, while leaving the torn areas white. I glued down bits from other artwork I had cut up (another way to destroy and re-create). I had some dried petunias and I glued these down as well.
Playing around with possible ideas for upcoming fantasy landscape step-outs. I figured out a super, easy way to draw people!
