ART TUESDAY??

HELLO!!
You must be thinking "what the heck is art Tuesday?"  Let me explain.  I usually do "Art Journal Wednesday", but today I have an art project and an art journal page both due today, so I'm just switching it up a bit!!  I also have another art journal page this week, but it probably won't be done until Thursday. ugh.
This first page is for A year in the life of an art journal.  As usual, they give the prompt in 3 parts.  This time they are:
Prompt: I'm Beautiful
Song: Real Love by Regina Spektor
Prompt: Self Portrait

So, I know nothing of this song, but you can see the lyrics.  I used some of them, and they are probably out of context, but only certain words came out at me.  And for the self portrait, I used a gel medium transfer that I learned from my very good friend Marit during one of her workshops that I took.  Here it is.
I won't even try to list the stuff I used.  It got done, and that's good enough, right???  Sorry for the cruddy picture. double ugh.

Then, I found a new blog to play with called Creative Tuesdays.  There, they give you a prompt to do with what you wish.  The prompt was Breakfast.  I thought, making a many layered background, with a "menu" on top would be fabulous!  The page looks far better in person.  But, I drew the bacon and the one egg myself thankyouverymuch!! *snort*

The pic is cruddy, again!  But the top says "Breakfast Menu".  Then I wrote some menu items, and tons of other crazy things.

And so, this is the end of my artsy post tour.  I hope you like them, or made you laugh a little at least!!
See you again soon!!

  16. Ooooh - such great layers to these pages!
    (I love Regina Spektor's cover of "Real Love" - I think I may like that version even more than John Lennon singing it!)
