Art Project Week 14 & 15

April brings a new theme to the Art Project

Color Safari (Exploring Inks & Paints)

Week 14
Art Challenge:  Watercolors
Journal Prompt: It's Water Under The Bridge
I covered the page with gesso and then blue watercolor.  I added a 'bridge' made from brown paper.  
I used stamps to add the journal prompt, more water colors to make a sky and water and ink to the bridge to give it texture.  

Week 15
Art Challenge:  Acrylics
Journal Prompt: Cry Me A River
Acrylics in shades of blue used to make a sky and water and a chain of 'tears'
I added the Journal Prompt but felt like it needed more
Inspired by Starry Nights I added swirls in the sky and liked the movement

I must say I am finding these prompts a bit hard this month, but it could have been the distraction of waiting for my Grandgirl to be born. 
Now that she is here, maybe I'll feel more creative.

Wishing you JOY,

Very nice. The pretty blues are nice to work with and I like your idea for the bridge. Enjoy your day and give that baby some hugs for me, Sis! Hugs, Diane

I was shocked at how good you did with everything going on!

You are doing just great! I'm know that little sweetheart is making your world go around! What a precious time.

They both look great Linda. I'm sure waiting for the baby was a distraction, but those prompts sound difficult to me. I just gave up on the project completely. I am keeping the art journal though and may use it occasionally just to do my own thing. :) Have a great weekend!

They still look beautiful Linda, and so creative. Your precious new granddaughter is the best distraction you could have.

Hi Linda! Oh, this is lovely! I'm just surprised you have the time to do this with your little new baby! :) You're amazing and you must let us know what kind of vitamins you take! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi Linda,
Congratulations on the birth of your new baby granddaughter. I know you are so excited and now Tiger has a little baby sister.
What a wonderful time in your life.
Love that you are taking the artist challenges. I haven't tried my hand at painting, but I think you have done a great job.
Love the "cry me a river!"

I just about have my creative space organized so I can actually do some art.

Love your work!
