I decide to use paper weaving in my next art journal spread.
I browse through my stack of magazines and choose 4 photos, 2 of interiors and 2 of nature, two of my favorite things.
I cut 2 of the photos into wavy strips.
I start weaving the strips together in the bottom right corner of the spread.
I glue the end of each strip down to hold them in place.
Now I cut the other 2 photos into strips.
I create the other weaving in the top left side of the spread.
Now it’s time to add some doodles. I extend the strips of paper with black outlines.
I fill in the overlapping shapes with black.
And then add white and black dots to the spaces. I like the composition at this stage, but think it will look even better if I tie the woven and doodles areas together more.
I fill in the spaces in the paper weaving with black and add white dots to create the finished spread.
