March's Art Project theme was
Making Your Mark (doodles & mark making)
Art Challenge: As a Focal Point
Journal Prompt: Coming Into Focus
One of the things I love about this art project is learning new techniques...I've seen many use a Gelli Plate to make interesting backgrounds on their pages. I got a small Gelli Plate and added some acyrlics in spring colors, rolled it with a brayer to mix the colors.
Then I applied it to the page
I like the colors and textures it adds to a page
I added my 'marks' using a pencil eraser to make dots all over the page. I added three circles and wrote the prompt: Focus in them
It seemed too Pink for me so I added some blue acrylics using the Gelli plate again. I think it got a little muddy, but I finally just called it done.
Art Challenge: Make a Custom Element
Journal Challenge: Ride the energy of your own unique spirit
I covered the page with torn pieces from a Paris guidebook.
I created a custom element using a makeup sponge. I cut it into a triangle shape and used it as a border on the page
I stamped the quote on newspaper edges and cut them out...I had already stamped the page with a dragonfly stamp which is a spirit element in my life
I used my original element to create a flower on the page
A few doodles with black ink and this page is complete. It is one of my favorites.
Thanks for joining me on this art journey!
Today is Tiger's Birthday and I'm going to party with him later today! I'll share some pics tomorrow! I can't believe my Grandson is now 4!
No new baby yet, but any day now!
Wishing you JOY,
