Hope you had a good day. Here it was cold and we had a lot of rain, but the sun kept trying to poke through the clouds, and in the evening we even had a rainbow.
Today we have a new challenge at Art Journal Journey. Sheila is our hostess and has chosen the theme, which gives lots of opportunities to let your fantasy swim free and surface. You can see her lovely example at our challenge blog. Hope to see lots of you taking part again and sharing your creations with us!
I am starting off with a rather spooky mixed media piece, which I have called 'The face of the Sea'. I used an A3 paper which was given a quick coat of gesso and then sprinkled with Brushos in blue, pink and lime green. I sprayed it with water to get the colours moving and dripping. I added more colour where necessary with Gelatos. I drew the face, and gave it a coat of white paint, letting the underlying colours stain through. The waves of her hair were worked with felt pens, Gelatos, water-colours and a gold gel pen. I added some fish and shells (vintage German scrap), some fuzzy gold fibres, and drew some seaweed.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted, as always, by Eva and Kristin, and to Simon Monday challenge, anything goes.
Some photos of the skies in the morning and evening. The sky had a delicate, greenish tinge this morning:
The rainbow, always something special for me:
And the evening clouds rolling up:
Have a great day you all, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
