the invisible girl …

for my first page for Art Journal Journey’s (AJJ) September Less is More challenge here I mentioned how using less instead of more is a BIG challenge for me…

Less is More challenge before

I do my best creating when I am not thinking too much or following too many guidelines but I do enjoy a good challenge

The Invisible Girl

the words are from a Love poem from inside a chocolate wrapper and the Forget-me-not image is one I have wanted to use for some time now from The Graphics Fairy

The Invisible Girl (1)

a bit of pencil scribbling on the tea stained background with a piece of cigar box paper for a border at the bottom…

Less is More final spreadmy two page spread completed now I think

added one more thing

I had to add one last thing to the lotus girl (I know I covered up those beautiful eyes!)…

thank you Art Journal Journey for another great challenge…

  4. Fantastic Patty! I love all of your details here against your tea-stained background. The forget-me-nots are beautiful, with this, and the lovely message that symbolizes, to me, the covering of the Lotus’ girl’s eyes. So creative and beautifully artistic. xxoo Marilyn

  20. Less is always more when you’re around. Can’t say this enough. You put the C in collage. Adding the sheet music over her eyes was a great way to tie the two pages together, too.

  23. The tea stained background is yummy as is the colour palette as a whole, the way you inject colour but it has a timeworn quality to it, gorgeous.
    As for covering up the girl’s eyes, the perfect decision.
    Memorable artwork.
