Art Project Week 3

I can tell I'm starting to get a little more
'comfortable' with this project.

January: The Blank Page and How to Face It
Art Challenge: The Color Wheel
Journal Prompt: "I found I could say things with colors and shapes that I couldn't say any other way..."  Georgia O'Keeffe

I used my water color palette as my inspiration for the color wheel
I used different shades of Blue, Yellows, Pinks and Purples
I had some handmade paper I cut into shapes
I added some water color to some of them
I really liked this weeks journal prompt and used it on my page...written in a soft black pencil
I used some gesso to add texture, added additional shapes and then used more gesso to add texture to the entire page
I loved doing this page! 

Thanks for sharing my Art Journal Project journey with me!

Well done Linda.

Cozy Little House said...

Wow, you are so much braver than I am! I have two canvases I got cheap and I want to do something with them to go with my boho look. But I'm really intimidated by paint. Oh, how I wish I had your pretty handwriting! I'll be watching. I've never used gesso either.

I think you are doing some really neat things with your journaling page! I am also impressed with your organization challenge! It seems you have started the year with lots of irons in the fire! Hope you have a terrific week!

That's really creative! I love that quote too :)

Funny, I found you a long time ago, when looking up my pyrex, because I wanted to find out information on them, but I never saw this other blog of yours. Small world!

Your creativity is shining! I love the use of color and shapes to express feelings in an art format. I also love the quote from Georgia O'Keeffe. It is so perfect for your Art Journal Project.
