Art Journal Every Day: Friday Update!

I didn’t do nearly as much work in my art journal this week as in previous weeks. Last night, I started to worry about what I would be posting this morning, but then I reminded myself that this challenge is not meant to stress me out. Rather, I am just using it to help me develop a daily “creative habit,” and it has certainly served that purpose!

At the beginning of the week, I came across a post on Pam Garrison’s web site that inspired me to work on this page for a couple of days:
I love the colors, and their contrast with the black lines. I went back later and added journaling in the middle.

I did a little more bird doodling:
Awhile ago, I checked out Kevin Henkes’ Birds from the library for the girls, and just loved the bold and colorful bird illustrations. I traced the outline of several of the birds, and I’ve been using those outlines to fill in with tangles.

I love finding doodling inspiration in unexpected places. When I got my February 2011 issue of Middle Ground, an educational journal published by the National Middle School Association (NMSA), I found this great drawing around the title of one of the articles:
I recreated the drawing in my art journal, with some personal thoughts journaled inside:
I added some new Zentangle patterns at the bottom of the page. I kind of like the Seaweed Border.

I finally finished my April calendar page. I used the same shadow stamp and ink colors as I used for the first half, and am continuing to record my “creative endeavors” each day.

Thank you for sharing in my art journal playtime activities!

Wishing you and your family a blessed Easter weekend.

I love the new zentangle squiggle lines! They remind me of the felt strips that smack your car in the carwash to get it dry! Very cool...
