It's in the Details

In the midst of all the newness of starting another academic term, I've managed to find some time to work in my art journal. Admittedly, part of this has to do with the fact that the library was closed for several days and I was waiting for my new computer to be delivered – there were few things to do!

I love how this spread turned out: it's brightly colored and full of fun details. It became a tribute to the summer, with its warmth, adventure, and sun-filled days. And the flap below? In July my silly brother decided to do a flip into the swimming pool and cracked his forehead open with his knee. I'm not quite sure how it happened. (Don't you worry, he has completely healed!)

I don't often do themed journal pages; I'm more inclined to follow my instinct and play with layers, colors, and texture as I go. It's such fun, though, to break away from the familiar and delve into an unexplored technique. Do you often use themed prompts to guide a journal spread?
