DAY 2: Breaking a blank page - three stages of an art journal page

Welcome back! This is the second day of a set of posts making up my first Seth Apter teamie post! I thought what to do and came to the conclusion that maybe I should keep things simple. Kind of starting from the scratch and continuing upwards. 

So as my first set of posts I decided to break making of an art journal page into three stages. I recorded a video of each stage and will share those videos and stages over the course of three days. If you missed the first post, you can see it here (link).

You can find Seth Apter's site here (link) and more about the Creative team here (link). I've included a list of products to the end of the post with links to Seth's own store. 

In my first post I showed three easy ways to break a blank page. The idea was to get rid of that perhaps scary white and blank page with a fast, easy layer. So in this second post I'm adding more layers. Now that the page has already something on it, I can just start building layers. 

I made four sheets in total in my first video, but continue with just two in this stage. I'm using different mediums and different steps in the making of these two sheets. They are layered, finished backgrounds which I then could turn into projects. And that's exactly what I'll do in my last video, take one of these two sheets and turn that into a finished art journal page. 

But for now, please see the video below to see how I continued working on the backgrounds!

Thank you for stopping by today! Please be back again tomorrow to see the final video!
