Been MIA lately again but it was because we were at the beach for 5 days with our friends! We had mostly glorious weather-warm enough to dip toes in the water, and catch some gorgeous sunsets too. We are still experiencing unusually warm weather here in PA and I am LOVING it! (77 degrees F on Wednesday alone!) Time to catch up now and share some art. I did do a bit of art in my watercolor journal whilst at the beach but the pages aren't complete so I'll share those in the next week.
There is a new theme this month over at Art Journal Journey-"inspired by autumn colors" so as soon as I got home I created this page inspired by the theme and the gorgeous colorful trees we are surrounded by. I am also linking this to TIOT (theme is lots of layers).
The tree and branches were created by using Higgins Black Magic ink applied with a dropper and then blowing the ink around with a small straw. The many colors are acrylic paints applied using a sponge and the words were added digitally. I remembered doing the ink blowing technique before and found some older samples:
As you can tell I have refined my branches a bit more in the new page above this :)
This is a scrap of glossy cardstock on which I applied drops of reinkers and blew through a straw.
Have you ever tried this?
Well, this is all I have for now. Will be linking up to Art Journal Every Day, Art Journal Journey, Paint Party Friday, and Try It On Tuesdays. Looking forward to visiting you and catching up again!
