This weeks art project
January: The Blank Page
Art Prompt: Under Paper (paper on your work table that gets all inky and painted while you work)
Journal Prompt: What Lies Beneath?
After some thought this made me think about a tree and the roots beneath it that make it strong
I didn't feel like I could draw a tree so I made a copy of one and then tore the edges
Using Mod Podge I centered it on my pages
Using shades of green and some yellow water colors, I add the leaves to my tree
The back ground was pink acrylic and some touches of blue watercolor
This is my underpaper. One of the things I'm enjoying about this project is learning new things all the time. Who knew 'under paper' was an art tool!
I decided to write the words I wanted to use on the under paper and then cut them out.
"What Lies Beneath Makes Me Strong"
"Faith Friends Family"
The tree is me and these are my roots
I added a new rubber stamp to the corners in hot pink and then softened it with water.
I'm happy that I was able to make my vision translate to the page!
Wishing You JOY,
