Sunday afternoon journal page fun inspired by a Youtube video. This was done by smearing a bunch of dylusions paints and gesso around and a bit of stamping.

This weeks assignment was to choose an inspiration piece and then create a journal page using the techniques we've learned so far. I have no idea why the bead add turned out to be the most inspiring thing i saw, but that it did. I think i was drawn to the colors and shapes, which I hope can be seen in the final page. the page includes some collage, Zentangles, Mandalas and stamping for texture. It was a challenge for me as the topic was so nebulous I had to force my creative mind to free up and go for it. The result is pleasant, considering how difficult the experience was for me.

"What else could you be?" In my quest to find the right collage bits I ran across the card with the lady and the text really stuck with me, so I worked the rest out around her. I laugh at myself because I left the pocket open on the envelope in case I "needed" it for something. Hey, you never know.

These are a couple of sketches from our travels recently. I've never done a travel journal, but I love the idea. I did these after the trip which provided me a bit of a more relaxed sketching experience. It seems a bit daunting to sketch something while on the go, but it's something I am going to try. As part of the lesson I was able to assemble a small, portable sketch kit. So, I will take that along and go for it.
