ART JOURNAL WEDNESDAY IS BACK!!

Whew!  Where has my art journal been???  AH!  I found it!  and I did the prompt for A Year in the Life of an Art Journal.  I have been very, VERY good this year!  I have managed to do every prompt so far.  I am very proud of myself!,  And I am currently working on the newest one too.

The prompts are always given in 3 parts.  Prompt, music, technique to try.  These are the prompts for
April 30th.
Prompt: BUSY
Song: Manic Monday by the Bangles
Technique to Try: Lace/Trim

I had fun with this one.  I wrote the lyrics to the song (which, i don't like.  But know every word from it being on the radio every minute in the 80's), and covered them lightly with some watered down white paint.  Then, I added 4 pieces of lace.  I have a roll of lace that is curved.  I guess you would use it for making colars and such.  Next, I added yellow paint, the watered down white, and watered down chocolate brown.  The combo looks lovely, I think.  My house had chocolate brown walls in the living/dining/kitchen/foyer room.  I used a teal colored marker to write some words like, busy, hurry, go, run, and I also changed it from "Manic Monday" to Manic everyday!  I outlined the words, and I traced the inside of the lace too.  Black india ink finished it off!

Pfew!  That was long!

I haven't added any work to my gallery lately.  So I will be trying to catch up on that now too.  I will see you all soon!

Many thanks to you for visitng!

  3. Love that art Daniella! Kind of reminds me of riding a wave on a tube, bouncing along, but that to me is busy, so there is the connection in my head, or at least my interpretation:)

    Absolutely brilliant!
    Can you believe it but I have never kept an Art Journal as such. I keep Journals, sketch books, etc, but not a designated Art Journal.
