the "warhol" art journal page


       These art journal pages were obviously inspired by Andy Warhol. Can you guess what they are made from? Vinyl. The flowers come from a recycled old shower curtain. These were stitched into the book of course, no glue would properly hold them. On the right page, I included a pocket for mementos and letters.


A close-up of the loud, splashy design. I made no attempt to conceal the stitching. 

       
       My art journal sampler is getting loaded. Soon I will need to paint on my sample pages only. I like to work with a variety of textures, however, so that my students can learn that the sky is the limit in the manipulation of materials. “Upcycling” is the key to creating unique art journals.
