Another week is done and dusted, and it's time for Paint Party Friday again, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin.
This painting started life as a squirt page - I had mixed some new inks and was trying them out. I quite liked what 'happened', so added a few splodges of gold ink before drying it. Then I had fun playing. It reminded me somehow of a landscape, so I made a lake and added colour here and there with pastel chalks. I outlined some of the drips with gold gel-pen, and then I had a magic castle. I drew in the bird with silver and blue gel pens, and drew a half circle for a full moon, which I coloured with pastels again. It had to be a full moon, as magical landscapes just need full moons. Then a neighbour came in, and said my head was always full of fantastic thoughts and dreams. So I added my head and the quote. I wanted the quote to form a half circle, so I laid a dinner plate onto the picture, and used it as a guide for the writing.
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, Simon Says Stamp and Show (fly, soar), and Art Journal Journey (the landscape within me)
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for coming by!
