This is the final installment in my art journal 201 progression, as it was the final class in the series yesterday.
The final class is about transfers. I know, transfers can be tough, and I probably shouldn't be teaching these in an introductory art journaling program... but my logic is that I want my students to complete the 6 classes with a toolbox of techniques that will enable them to do anything they want on a page. And transfers are an important part of being able to do that.
So we do 2 transfer techniques in class - tape transfers and gel transfers. I pre-prepare skins for the students and discuss the technique, but we don't have enough drying time for skins to cure properly, so its a toughie to do in class.
Here's the transfers page from the first iteration of Art
here's the second.
This page has a bit more collage than the previous, as I want to introduce the students to the concept of mixing their techniques. Often I find that they will compartmentalise and have a page of "texture" and then a page of "transfers". In Art Journaling 202 we start to explore the ideas of using multiple techniques on pages as well as mixing up our techniques and media.
So I will be a bit quiet on the blog for the next few weeks. The packing men arrive early tomorrow morning (7.30 am), to move my house interstate, and I have to clean before my tenants move in. I've got a day at the races Saturday, and then its off to Perth to house hunt in a week before starting my new job.
'till next time
