Hi you all! I know I am always saying that time flies, but this week went by at supersonic speed, and it's already time for Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.
I was wanting to show some thoughts to childhood in my journal pages, but as this is something I do not much like dwelling on, the pages did not turn out as I would have liked. I did manage to finish them, so at least that is something. The figures on the left page have been stamped or made with a template, and deliberately left unclear, as I think the memories we have of people and faces is often vague.
YIKES!!! I just saw that I spelled 'Fragrant' wrongly! Shame on me! Now my journal will forever remind me that I didn't check my spelling! Oh, what an ass I am!!
Linking to Art Journal Journey - challenge yourself.
The orange moon WIP is still not finished. I have added some more colours, but they are hard to catch in the photo. I will keep trying to get it finished!
For the alpha Challenge at the Craft Barn I chose the word Aboriginal and tried to do some Aboriginal art.
Now I know where the expression 'going dotty' came from! There are rows of orange dots in between the brown and white ones, but they are not showing up here. I coloured the background using terracotta acrylic paint, applying the paint with a sponge pouncer to keep it dry and give a mottled effect. Then I fussy cut the leguans(?) lizards or whatever, before going dotty with white, orange and brown pens. I enjoyed making it, in spite of all the dots, and will try something like this another time.
Have a good day you all, take care, and thanks for coming by!
