This week was one of those times where “real life” stands in the way of my best creative intentions.
In one week’s time I discovered that we need a new air conditioner, that my younger daughter has a peanut allergy, that I drove over a razor blade that popped my back right tire, that I have another cold, and that the dishwasher is broken.
Obviously, handling all of these developments cut into my art time, but I still managed to play a bit, and thought I would share:
a video by Paula Phillips at Journal Artista.
Basically you just write in cursive, draw a line that traces around all of the letters, and then fill that in for a nice bubble writing effect. I definitely recommend that you watch the brief video if my explanation doesn’t make much sense!
I already posted about one of my journal pages from this week: my Little Houses, based on Caatje’s work at Caatje’s Artsy Stuff.
On the other side of the spread, I played around with some watercolors, but haven’t done anything with that page yet:
On another page where I had played around with watercolor swirls, I wrote a brief journal entry about “beginner’s luck”, but have left the other side blank so far:
I also started my May calendar page, recording my creative endeavors each day. I think I’ll wait to save that to share when it’s filled.
Thanks for taking a look at my art journaling progress this week!
