Diana Trout has a youtube video showing how to make a duct tape journal. I have made a few of them now but this one is a bit different. I took it a step further by really jazzing up the cover. I applied beads, sequins etc. I waited for the glue to dry and then added a coat of matte medium. Any acrylic medium will work though. Once it is dry I added color with alcohol inks. I believe I learned that from a youtube video as well. It is so nice and glitzy! Just the way I love it!
As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
