This art journal spread has many built up layers of color, through paint, sprays and stencils. Then it was detailed/doodled on with markers and stamps. They were quick, simple and fun pages.

This challenge was to express the new year by depicting what was out your backdoor using only three colors, combined with white, black and gray. We have spectacular sunsets, which I enjoy. So from those examples I used purple, red and yellow with the others to get the variety I wanted. For me this represents leaving behind the past year and the dawn of the new year. Its a chance to reflect, let go and move forward.

For my art journal, Inspiration Wednesday, I went for a simple coffee mug, with a focus on shading and depth. It was a challenge to not get too heavy handed and in some areas I had to go back and lighten or darken to get to where I was happy. It was a surprisingly fun spread to do.

Abstract landscape number 3 was a struggle which I worked through and eventually enjoyed. I painted over most parts and started over, and I learned that's ok. Nobody even knows, or cares.... I had the hang up about not getting it right the first time, or second, or third, etc big deal! I kept going until I got something I'm pretty happy with and had fun doing.

This mosaic was made by designing nine different boards and then sticking them on to the larger backer board. I used cardboard for all the substrates. Which I covered in a collage of different book text, then spread on some paints with a pallette knife and sprayed them with Lindy's sprays. Finally, I designed each tile, then the backer and adhered the tiles.
