Curiosity - Art Journal Page

Where would we be without a sense of curiosity? Since childhood, I have been a naturally curious person and persistently want to know the "why" and "how" of things.  Thankfully the internet makes feeding my need to know so easy to quench.

When I saw "curiosity" as an art journal emotions prompt idea on the Mixed Media Place blog a while back, it struck a chord with me and I sketched out a page idea for later use. I had an opportunity to play last evening and combined my sketched out page idea with the June Moodboard colours over at Scrap Around the World.

I went with a questioning science based take on curiosity and used a bunch of clip art images that fit the subject focus and reflect some of my interests.

Supplies: 400 Series Watercolor Hardbound 11" Art Journal (Strathmore),gesso (Golden), Tim Holtz tissue paper and distress paints, Dylusions numbers stencil, gel medium, Archival Ink (Ranger), whipped spackle and Pitt Artist Stamper's Big Brush pens (Faber-Castell), Specimen stencil (The Crafter's Workshop), question mark stamps (Kelly Panacci, CTMH, Making Memories), chipboard and fabric letters (Prima), sticker letters (BasicGrey), gelly roll pen (Sakura), clip art (misc.)

From the supplies list, you can see that I had a fun playtime using lots of techniques and media.  A few detailed close ups shots:

I would have to say that I went with a more masculine take on this beautiful SATW June Moodboard.
