Hi Friends,

Happy Saturday!  Hope your weekend is going well so far.  We have been getting battered by heavy rain and wind and me and my poor house are so over it.  Time to hibernate I think!  Perhaps even in one of these little houses in the magical forest.

Today’s Art . . .

Today’s art is a page using my Day 7 prompt:  Magical Forest

This is Friday’s prompt but life got in the way and I didn’t feel that great so it’s a bit later than planned.  When I started this page I had no idea how it was going to turn out.  I knew I wanted a forest and for it to be light in the centre.  I started off with acrylic ink, mixing some colours together to get a shade I liked, and then moved to watercolour, and then back to acrylics and then back to watercolour and this is how it ended up.

The final touch was to add the little houses to the trees and the little toadstool garden outside.

Hope you feel inspired to join in the challenge this month and have fun with it!  Let me know what you think in the comments.   As always, thanks for reading!

Daily Prompts

Here are the prompts I will be using and you can probably tell that a lot of them are related to fairytales, but you don’t have to use them that way or you don’t have to use them at all.  I will be attempting all 31 days but I may not make it and that’s OK too.  The prompts are there if you feel stuck or in need of extra inspiration.   I just respond well to a daily prompt and I will also be sharing my pages on Instagram.  If you share your work on Instagram there is a hashtag.  Please note, that to enter the Art Journal Journey challenge using the Mr Linky tool, you will have to link from a blog since it is a blog challenge.

Or you can ignore the daily prompts completely and focus on the overarching theme for the month.  The daily prompts are there if you want to make more pages but need some extra prompting.

That’s a great forest with the sun brightening it and those cute mushrooms. Never mind this great houses. I can just imagine the forest gnomes who live In them. This is another great page for your challenge Elle. I hope your rain stops and the weather improves. Happy weekend. Hugs Erika
