Recently I have joined an art group whose members create the most fabulous artwork. In an effort to be more creative and share art, I have decided to participate in the "Life Word Prompt". This is a monthly prompt given to create an artistic journal page. I came in on this late, but I have since caught up!
|Follow Your Heart|
The word prompt for this month is "Follow your heart". Creating a journal piece is very new to me. I have participated in altering books and find that they are fun and very rewarding. However, looking at a large blank page is quite challenging for me. Generally I am not a heart type of girl...this month's page requirement was to have a heart, and I have found myself taken by them recently. This journal page was colored with dye based ink markers and chalks. I found coloring with the chalks difficult, as I wanted to be shy with the color. However as I look at the work, I feel that I could add more shadows in some areas so that the large heart will look like it will jump off the page!
Last month the word prompt was "Live Simply". The requirement for this page was to use a stamp. Unfortunately, the page was not complete in time to participate with it. I had a hard time locating the stamp that was used on it. Once found, the tiny dots were added and the page completed...for now.
This page was colored using dye based inks. Text was added with a black Sharpie.
