Can you guess what inspired me to do these pages? April showers bring May flowers....that's what I keep telling myself. And hopefully they also bring lots of veggies from my garden as well.
I've been playing in my art journal lately, in hopes of channeling my inner creative voice. There are no rules to art journaling, which at times is a challenge for me. Sometimes it's hard to let go and let loose. I tend to get caught up in painting the details in my watercolors and I think the art journal will give me the freedom to play and not worry about "getting it right". It's more about having fun with the process and trying new art tools and techniques.
These pages were covered with white gesso. Later, while listening to the never ending rain, I pulled out some old Crayola watercolors, tipped my journal upright, and just began adding lots of paint allowing it to drip. I love drips and I loved the results. The paint made a wonderful background for my words. I was amazed by the brightness of the colors......and to think they were in my kids art supplies! Who knew?!
Do any of you have an art journal? What tips and tricks have you discovered while playing?
