Happy Friday! I got some late night journalling done last night and so I have a page to share with you today.
Today’s Art . . .
This page was inspired by one of the lessons in the Virtual Art Summit (free access till June 23 if you are interested). The lesson was by Carissa Gan and it was to make a watercolour abstract piece. I did start off with watercolour, but in my journal instead. Because of the watercolour, it was required to tape off the edges around the paper or in this case, around my page, so I ended up with two abstract pieces, one on each side of the journal page. I chose this lesson to start off because I had been thinking about abstract art. I’ve been trying to catch up with the show Billions, and in season 5 there were some episodes involving an abstract artist, very Jackson Pollock, lots of huge canvases and splattery paint and light-filled studios. It was refreshing to see someone who (at first) was not motivated by money, as practically everyone else in the show is lol. Anyway the storyline didn’t go as I hoped it would but I did get to see lots of art and that was in my mind when I saw this lesson. It would be fantastic to be able to throw paint around on such large canvases, even if the result was terrible, it would just be so much fun!
Here’s a look at the page before I removed all the masking tape this morning…
As you can see I am again using Miss Lily’s sunbathing spot and she was not happy as the sun was just starting to hit the table and she wanted me moved!
This page works for the current theme of ART SUPPLIES for More Than Words and I am also linking this page to this month’s theme of NUMBERS hosted by Matilde over on Art Journal Journey as my page contains page numbers from the book I used for my found words. And since there is so much mixed media on the page, I am also linking to Creative Artiste, all challenge details at the end of the post.
Let me know what you think in the comments. As always, thanks for reading!Ingredients
