I’m still working on the Journal 52 prompts for 2015 and while I’m not completely “caught up” I have kept going, which is really the point, right? This is from Week 1: Pathways. I had fun with watercolor paint on this. My favorite part is the texture from the gesso that makes the bark of the tree. I’d like to say that I planned that, but NOPE!
This is from Week 12: Inspiration Board. I could wax poetic about my love for coffee (and I will make MANY more pages about my love for the bean…) but this was just fun to make. I actually worked on this while having coffee in a local coffee shop (OOOH!). This was colored with watercolor pains and I used pieces of an old calendar and candy wrappers on it. Makes me want a fresh cup!
Week 7: Valentines. While I can feel conflicted about the subject, that never stops me from getting my “mushy” on. Hearts are just fun shapes to work with. And have no doubt, I am wildly, completely, overwhelmingly in love with someone…I’m just too cool for Hallmark sentiment. Looking forward to making more pages this weekend.
A new Journal 52 prompt comes out every Friday.
Yes, I am doing this now too. Perhaps more than last year, perhaps not.
Week 9…Artistic Restraint
Black, white & red. Watercolor, acrylic, scrapbook paper, and sakura gel pens.
Week 11…Just Write.
Cheap Artist Loft butterfly stencils, Folkart stencil cream paints & a Hampton art dye marker to KEEP WRITING!
As long as it’s fun, I’ll keep doing it. I have enough pressure in my life….
