His Eye Is On The Sparrow - Mixed Media Art Worship Collage Art Journal Page

I'm back again with yesterday's art worship art journal page. I'm so in LOVE with the hymn devotionals at She Reads Truth this week. I may end up posting all week my pages. I should really do process photos. This is also for Week 2 of Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday videos.

I meant to do this in my The Documented Life art journal since I'm "behind" and Week 3 is the color wheel prompt... then I realized I had done the background in my other art journal and then decided to turn it into a collage to go with Donna's video. I really love how it turned out. Even though I don't have any process photos... here's my step by steps:


  • 1) I used a really thick coat of gesso and a palette knife to give the background some texture so it wasn't so flat.

  • 2) Next after the gesso dried, I sprayed water on top of the pages and used a wet brush to water down the paint and just started painting blobs, when I would go to another color I would blend the colors in along the edges. This was so fun and freeing and therapeutic.

  • 3) I LOVED it, but was totally stuck on what to do next... I ended up using an orange juice cap and a roller stamp to create the lines and circles... always thinking in the visual triangle and odd numbers.

  • 4) Then I was really stuck with what to do next. I went to go look up what the journaling prompt was and then realized that I was working in the wrong journal... since this journal was where I was doing the Inspiration Wednesday journaling, I decided to go for it and do some collaging, using Collage Pauge and tissue paper.

  • 5) To embed the tissue paper into the design, I went over it with a palette knife and gesso. Oops, I smeared the "night" paint, so I re-did those circles and the roller stamping.

  • 6) I then tore the hymn out of my hymnal and decided to only use the "refrain". I adhered that with the Collage Pauge. I remembered that Donna had used some alphabet stickers, so I grabbed my stickers and adhered them to the other side. I was out of black "s" and had to color one of them. Then I tore out the title of the hymn and adhered it underneath.

  • 7) After everything was dry, I went over some areas again with some gesso to blend some of the pieces in better. I think I am done now with that one. I wish I had a birdie stamp, that would have been perfect for this page... oh well, a butterfly will do!
