It’s the end of the week; time to blast you with a vision impairing burst of color. Or at least that’s what seems to have happened this week. It looks like I forgot to allow for much white space, and that goes for the art journaling as well as in my life. It’s been a busy week — have you found that happening for you as well?
Here’s a little something to push you over the edge into the weekend.
The next one came out of a challenge from Get Messy Art Journal, a fun site with prompt, tutorials and challenges. I’d been saving the front page of a newspaper magazine, and the challenge was to use ripped pieces of paper in some way. Can you see the lady on the bottom right corner?
The next two are two takes on the same thing. I facilitated a workshop, once through The Urban Retreat and once for a young adults group at a church. I like to practice and prepare ahead of time, making sure I keep lists of everything I’d like to have available for the experience. These are two passes at the same material. I like how they turn out differently, even though it’s the same me doing them.
Moment of bragging: I found the needlepoint form of a door-hanger for $0.49 at a craft store. It works really well with spray inks and not so well as a stencil. But with a little finessing I think there’s a way to make it work.
That’s all for now. What are you doing to feed your soul this weekend? Be good to yourselves! And be sure to check back on Monday for a Medical Mondays guest post. As always, thanks for reading!
