52 Weeks Art Journal - Week 14 - Abstract

 Hello All.

This week Raspberry Blue Sky has set us the theme 'Abstract' for our art journal pages. 

I decided to use some of my recent hand-carved stamps and some of the scraps around my desk. I picked some collage scraps with purple on them, which inspired me to pick the complimentary colour orange, and also some blue, which goes beautifully with both colours. 

I used my glass dip pen to add some scribbled writing and ink splashes, then decided to stand back and leave my page until the next day, to see if it needed anything else.

Although I loved the page as it was, it needed a focal point. I flipped through my art journal pages for inspiration, and found a page where I'd sketched a circle using black ink and a pipette. I love to let the ink drip.  😁

I then found some random words amongst my book page scraps. Perfect! Job done!

I'm also linking this page to Art Journal Journey's Inspired By theme. I can see the colours of blue skies and Spring flowers in this page too.

Hope you're all having a good week,

Thanks for visiting,

Alison xox


  1. I loved your page too before you added the black circle. Before scrolling down I thought, uh oh, but I like it just as much with the circle, dripped ink and the random words. I always love seeing scribble writing too. I think it’s fun.

  2. Fabulous, colourful and fun art journal page, thanks for joining us at AJJ, hugs, Valerie

  3. That focal point really does finish your page. I love that big drippy circle. It is an amazing page Alison. Thanks for sharing with us at AJJ. Hugs-Erika

  4. I am always in love with abstract, something I struggle with. I adore the beauty of this, the colors, and the randomness that comes together to create a gem. I even love the words you chose. This is wonderful. It's also a great entry for Art Journal Journey, too, dear Alison.
