I found a photo in a magazine that had lots of detail, textures, and colors. I started cutting it into wavy strips and set up a photo shoot.
And, oooh, I like how the strips look lined up below the top of the photo. I decide to use that arrangement as the base of the art journal spread. Before I started this spread, I had no idea what it would look like. I love the serendipity of liking the way I randomly arranged the papers for the photo shoot.
Here they all glued down.
Then I started adding doodles.
Because the photo is so detailed, I kept the doodles simple. I love the finished spread and am glad that I took advantage of the serendipity of using the random arrangement I made for the photo shoot.
