What's in my art journal? Oh My!!!

 *fans self*

I don't always use men on my art journal pages, but when I do, it's Idris Elba!

Thought I'd try something different, create a page with a MAN on it!!! This was really interesting to create.  Starting with a page that already had a bit of distress color on it, I had to be careful not to put down a color that may change the mood of the page.

If you don't know who Idris Elba is, just google him.  SEX E!!! (sigh) Anyway,  He stars as  a detective  in this series called Luther (check it out on Netflix).

I wanted this magazine clipping to look like either he was becoming part of the background or that he was coming out of the background.  Viewer decides.  And guess what?  He watched me the entire time.....I think he enjoyed it!

I appreciate your visit today, thank you.  Until the next blog...enjoy!

  1. OMG, GF! I had no idea who Idris Elba is so, yes, I did have to Google him. I got sucked into watching videos for about 1/2 an hour! Yes, he is gorgeous (oh, that accent!) and perfect for your journal page here. I believe there is an intimacy between Elba and the background that cannot be separated. Yep! That's my final answer! Amazing art, Carol!
