BRRRR!!! Baby it's COLD outside! So I stay in as much as I can and that's perfect for doing more art. Here is a journal page that began like this:
I painted over the page with Payne's Gray, a deep blue and magenta. I have always had a fear of starting with dark colors but an online class with Mindy Lacefield that I took last year helped me through. Not just that but it taught me about using paint colors all around a face to bring more harmony. You can see my paintings from that class here, here, and here if you wish.
This is my finished page:
Yup, that would be me:) Linking this to Art Journal Every Day; Art It Friday -Show Your Face; Art Journal Journey; and Paint Party Friday.
And this is a card I made for the Simon Wednesday Challenge whose theme this week is "ombre" :
Products: lg white notecard; glossy cardstock; patterned cardstock (Glitter Stack-DCWV); Wild Fairy Lily rubber stamp (Hero Arts); sentiment (Hampton Arts); rubber brayer; Blue Breeze Kaleidacolor, Versafine Onyx Black inks (Tsukineko); die cut cardboard bird.
My word for the year finally came to me and you can see it in my last post.
Also, did you notice my new blog header??? I managed it
This Sunday we'll be celebrating hubby's birthday with a spaghetti dinner and chocolate cake and some family so I'll be busy cleaning, cooking and baking. What are you up to this weekend?
I leave you with this quote which purely states how I feel right now...
" I love summertime more than anything else in the world. That's the only thing that gets me through the winter, knowing that summer is going to be there." Jack McBrayer
