These are from the last month or two but I have been hesitant to share until now. Here I have no real plan, this is where I experiment with fonts, colors, textures. Play. These are in a journal I made this summer with watercolor paper. I have found that I really prefer watercolor paper for my art journals. I like how it holds up to a lot of water and abuse without soaking through to the next page. I’ve tried using a few other types of papers but I always come back to watercolor paper. These make me pretty happy.
“Litmus Test”-inspired by the expectations we/I have on people who are my friends or what I expect from myself. Really thinking about how I don’t give myself much slack and I have these little tests I must pass before I am happy with where I am at.
Two separate pages revolving around this question that has really been on my mind lately.
“bits of summer” and “Gentle Cycle Please”. Found this phrase on a tag of a new shirt. I loved how polite it was in asking that you wash the shirt carefully. And then I thought that there are times in life when it would be nice to have a switch or dial that we could change to gentle cycle when we could use a little bit of “gentle” handling. This has evolved into a larger piece that I am still working on.
This was inspired by a youtube video by Suzi Blu who challenged you to write down all of the reasons why you don’t have time to create anything. Then paint over it, add a pic of you at four and write a letter to the younger you. Great way to work through a few issues that keep me from creating!
Thanks for stopping by!
