More watercolor, white acrylic and ink
Stepping out of my comfort zone… which is, you know, pastels. Although, the watercolors I have don’t lend themselves to hyper-vivid colors.
Easy breezy and fast art journal… progression…
be sure to grab a few!
I used a hydrangea flower petal paper punch, some old generic tags, black construction paper, acrylic paint and lots of glue and Art Institute Glitter!
The Art Glitter colors I used can be found here:
Then each petal was glued down, then glitter was added to the middle of each.
Then I added the lettering with glue and a dusting of fine silver glitter.
Sometimes, you may get a little withered petal of an experience that threatens to ruin what you have already gathered, but it’s up to you not to let that one little dark spot ruin all the beautiful other memories you have collected. So, take the bad with the good and hopefully, you’ll be able to step back and see a beautiful garland of flowers, with the few withered petals hidden and overcome by the bright and prominent ones.
Here are some Springy drawings that I turned into gift tags, which you can download for FREE! Just click on the smaller image of the tags at the bottom and download the PDF.
My latest “art journals” have been less “journal” and more art. I guess I ran out of inspirational sayings (?). I used colored pencils for these drawings.
Happy little bunny!
This anthropomorphic cat drawing was inspired by a vintage illustration I found a while back and for the life of me, I can’t find who the artist is. In the original, the cats were walking through snow with their umbrellas. I think it’s quite adorable, especially since cats despise water and I can imagine they would walk upright if they could to avoid it. So, I thought that cats must love May since the April showers are clearing for drier, warmer napping weather. We have a dog… who bounds through water, mud, dirt, weeds… she wouldn’t even want an umbrella.
