Evolution of a spread: Holy grail

Holy grail 01Just finished a new art journal spread and this time I remembered to take some photos along the way.

Step one: gesso and  collage elements

 

 

 

Holy G 1Step 2: Paint : cobalt blue mixed with raw umber, paynes grey, yellow ochre and of course all mixed with some white.

 

 

 

Holy grail 2Step 3: Stencilling with 3 different colours, 2 stencils, I’m loving that medieval look as usual. I love the colours too. Still don’t have a clue what to make this page about.

 

 

Holy Grail 3Step 4: More collage. I happened to have an image of a grail like cup or chalice lying on my desk. I also added a pentacle and some italian patterned paper. As I was gluing down these images the words “What is your Holy grail?” popped into my head. Good question, I thought. If I was searching for a Holy grail in my life, what would that be??

Holy grail 4Step 5: Finishing touches. Stamped the words “holy grail”, and did some writing . I think my Holy grail would be learning to live with joy and gratitude IN EACH PRESENT MOMENT. I wish I could do that more often!

What about you? What is your Holy Grail?
