Welcome June! Here's to wishing everything and everyone affected because of the Covid -19 pandemic will continue to move forward and work its way back to business as usual. I am so bummed that hubby and I had to cancel yet another planned beach trip for next week but you can bet we're gonna make up for it eventually;)
Above is just a detail of this journal page:
This page was done on a canvas page in the Dina Wakley Media Journal. The card is a 3" x 5" index card I had made last year for the Daisy Yellow Index Card a Day Challenge. I am attempting to repurpose small art projects such as this and a circle art challenge I also did last year. I just added the stitching to the completed card. Products: acrylic paints; Tim Holtz Stencils-Linen, Numbers; White, Genetian Marabu Artspray (used to make the drips and drops).
Joining Art Journal Journey for the new theme this month "A Stitch in Time"; the Simon Says Monday Challenge "Make Your Own Background".
Speaking of index card art, the ICAD Challenge has begun and the challenge is to make art on an index card each day June 1 thru the end of July- 61 days total. Tammy has been hosting it for 10 years now but this is only my second time. We'll see if I reach the end this year again:)
Here is my first card:
My plan is to use all the gelli plate techniques I have tried on the index cards and then keep it simple by using a short quote/affirmation along with washi tape. This quote is a fave of mine and is an old rubber stamp from PSX. I'll also link this to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes). I'll post my cards daily on Instagram but for my blog I'll post what I've done once a week.
For my T Stands For Tuesday entry:
Prep work (along with a glass of Pinot Noir) for a pasta dish I made with chopped roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, shrimp, olive oil, garlic, basil, parsley, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. This is a Spring/Summer go to meal for hubby and I. Cheers!
Lastly, another journal page I recently shared on Instagram:
Again, in a Dina Wakley Journal. This was part of her Daily Demo lesson on using black gesso. Dina's Daily Demo lessons are all on her blog and You Tube. The black gesso was brushed over a watercolor journal page. The masks for the figures were cut from some figures I made and printed out from Dina's Figuratively Speaking online class. Dina Wakley paints and collage tissue words were used along with white gesso, a black Fude pen and orange Posca pen for the spatters. This page definitely went through an ugly phase and I almost gave up- but I am so glad I didn't cuz I love the end result!
Joining in at Paint Party Friday also. Wishing you sprinkles of happy colors throughout your week.
