Remember that series I started in 2016 - "Mucking Around in my Art Journal?" That's where I play around with no fixed idea of what I'm doing, and now end point in sight. Well, inspired by Marjie Kemper's new Facebook Group, #halfhourofart, I'm back at it. Here's the first installment for 2017!
This is the first spread in a brand new journal (Global Arts Watercolor). I wanted to cheer myself up while waiting for my friend Lynne to come out of her coma. (You can read all about that here.) So I decided to give myself 1/2 hour with happy, warm colors, without any idea of where I was going.
I used the Hearts Flowers and More stencil to texture the background;
Gwen LeFleur's Heraldry stencils for December Stencil Club gave me the angel wings I was looking for, along with some of the other motifs.
The silhouettes are from a magazine page I had pulled out and saved.
And the bottom border is part of my Whimsy Crown stamp from Rubbermoon.
Here's a fast forward video (about 7 minutes) of my 1/2 hour process.
You can also see this video, and lots of other demos and tutorials, on my YouTube channel.
Thanks for stopping by!
