Daydream Art Journal page (from a failed Inktober sketch)

Hi friends! This started out as a messy inkblot from a failed sketch but after a opened up my journal a picture appeared!


BTW I did post a whopping 2 videos on my YouTube channel today, my regular inktober and a Konmari VLOG if you want something extra:) But here is the process of how I turned a rorschach looking inkblot into an art journal spread.



This was a fun, learn as you go project. That’s why I narrated it after the fact. I hope you try some of these techniques to rescue a page too! Happy crafting!

  4. I was horrified at first how often you added layer to layer to her skin … I thought it would end up looking muddy but somehow now she has a porcelain complexion! Also, the final dark splashes on her hair made it look more curly and thick (too bad I can’t so that to my OWN hair).

    Goes to show in a journal one has the freedom to do anything and see how it works out. I would have never dared to do that in a painting! Thanks for showing us this video.
