Harry Potter Art Journal Page

This week’s Documented Life Project prompt was to use vellum.  I do not possess any vellum and I had no desire to buy some so I decided to have another whirl at using deli paper.  A couple of weeks ago, I used the deli paper as a collage material; this time I decided I would use it as a surface on which to paint.

Since we had just spent a fun day at last weekend’s Harry Potter Festival, I decided to actually document my life and work on a Harry Potter inspired page.  I painted Harry on my journal page and then used washi tape to fix a “flap” of deli paper onto the page.  I then painted Voldemort onto the deli paper “page” so that his face covered that of Harry beneath.  I found the deli paper quite hard to paint on because it was so crinkly and the paint took longer to dry.  It was a good way to add a flap since it meant I had an extra page without adding any additional bulk but I think I prefer deli paper as a collage material.
