Scribble Page by Jen Matott
As a kid,I loved to doodle, scribble, and draw. I still love it! Scribbling gets a bad rap from adults. It's discouraged by adults because we think it's not really art. But as an art teacher, sometimes scribbles are very artistic! They get our hand warmed up, they can be spontaneous and just darn fun! I never discourage scribbles except when students are supposed to be drawing realistically. Here is a page in my journal that I created scribbles as the main part of the page!
It's actually the page behind the cover. I have a cut out window and you can see the middle circle and quote through the window.
mixed with Glaze and Gel Medium. I had to do several layers and let it dry completely.
To create the white space/ shapes, I used some of my old chipboard letters that were circles and used removable adhesive dots to place them on the page. I also cut a circle from scrap paper to fit the middle space. Once they were glued down, I used a PITT® Artist Pen in black in a medium tip size and scribbled all over! I started with tight scribbles and just filled it most of the page. Once I removed the masked areas, the white was visible. I splattered some watered down colors lightly with a stiff brush. This was an easy and fun technique to create artsy scribbles!
