These journal pages are in my "Dark Journal." This is an old repurposed ex-library book that I picked up in a library sale. The title of the book is "Cruelly Murdered" and it is about a grotesque murder that happened in England in 1860 and an investigation into who could have done it. The book is full of accounts, and photos and maps and plans, and I knew the minute I saw it at the library that it would be a perfect book to use as a "dark journal" for darker art journalling moments. I decided that I didn't really want darker and more personal art pages in my normal journals.
These pages are all mixed media with acrylic paint, collage, black Pitt artist pen, gesso, chalk pastel, souffle pens, sharpies. The eyes are my own drawing and painting.
