SO i have been so busy with my kiddos out for spring break that yet another week has slipped by! I hate it when I neglect my blog so...
Here is a little of what I have been up to! I decided to take the plunge and take an online class. I have been on the fence about one - and the perfect class for me came along! The Art of Wild Abandonment by Junelle Jacobson amd Christy Tomlinson! I have followed Christy for several years - and one of my new years goals was to work in my art journal more - so this class was perfect!
My spring inspiration was this photo:
I wanted bright yellow tulips - so I took artistic liscence and did what I wanted! I do love the pink though and will definately be doing this again in pink!
I started with a page in my are journal and I adhered torn up dictionary pages on top with Gloss Medium. Then I gesso'ed on top to sofetn up the text and prime the surface for my watercoloring. Then I sketched out my scene with a mechanical pencil. The I went to work adding watercolors - starting with the vibrant yellow first. I let that dry then added the green and blue above and below.
I added the scripture "Faithfulness springs forth from the earth and righteousness looks down from heaven" Psalms 85:11
I doodled and sketched around my watercolors with my doodle pen from Scarlet Lime. And I added white accents with my Signo Uni Ball pen from my store! I splattered on top with white and black inks.
I am VERY pleased with how it turned out. This is actually my first completed piece from the class - I am a week behind because of internet issues! Blast! That is also why I have beem MIA on me blog! Some firewall thing or something - that I ask eric everyday - is it fixed yet???? I am still not able to get email on my computer - thank goodness for my phone!
SO I hope you like my journal entry - and are inspired!
