Hi! I have been trying to balance my art with my blog. Meaning, I'm trying to not only show you pictures of my art, but I'm also sharing pics and stories about my new house, and my various hobbies and collections. Tons of stuff I'm trying to share, and there are only 7 days in a week, and if I hope to have art, or home improvements on here, I need time to DO THEM!!
So, I am trying, this week, to make a day where my art doings will always be. Wednesday will be my day dedicated to art. SO, here it is!!
This is my page for A Year in the Life of an Art Journal.
The song: Breakin' Dishes by Rihanna
Technique to try: Bleach
I started with collage, then started drawing and writing with my favorite markers. Next was my many layers of ink, and glimmer mist. I then did the bleach technique. I bleached with a stamp before, and I really liked it. Here it is.
After the bleach, I went back over the page with markers, re-writing the words that were missing from the bleach, and putting dots around the letters, stuff like that.
So, I finished prompt 3 on time!! The 4th is up now and I am ready!! I still don't have many supplies, but I'm making it work. Pretty cool.
Next, I made my first page for a new art journaling group I found called Art JOURNAL Daily. The woman there, Tracie, is really awesome. I am so inspired by her prompts! She has all of the prompts up on her blog, and they really make me think. This page was about circles, and making them and stuff. I happened to have this page already made. I dipped different lids from cans and stuff, into paint and made the circles. Now, I only added some stickers, writing and paint dobber circles. I cheated, but I finally found something to do with that half done page.
And, Julie, from Art Journal Everyday posted a new prompt as well. Her prompt was about color. I have a book that I didn't finish that I'd like to use for this. She showed off some of her wonderful work, and one was a book about color. I want to do that with the book I have. I intend to use the whole book for different colors. I have TONS of little paint swatches from my recent visits to home improvement stores, and I want to use them all!! Stay tuned for that!
Thank you for hanging out with me, going through my recent work. Hope you visit again soon!
