Artist Trading Card

As this work evolved, it started to remind me of a playing card from some strange deck.  When the numeral was added in the upper right corner, it became "The Five of Fish."    
Five images were used (the fish was duplicated 5 times and manipulated in size and orientation), and layered in Adobe Photoshop.

Mixed Media Zentangle

One of the things I love about Mixed Media is the freedom to experiment with any combination of techniques together on the same surface.   It's always a new adventure to see how one medium plays with another.  
For this journal spread, I started with layers of colored mono prints, using a Gelli Printing Plate, for the background.
Collage elements were added, and I used black and white pens and pencils to make the Zentangle drawings around the face.  
After the drawing was completed, I added the quote to the facing page, and a bit more work over all with black and white colored pencils.
There are no rules in Art Journaling, which makes it easy to work intuitively and let your ideas flow.
