Working on two journal projects this month has been pretty exciting stuff for me, a learning process. The Li'l Journal Project over at www.lilblueboo.com is based on prompts that Ashley Hackshaw creates daily and posts on her blog. Each prompt subject (s) leads to a past or present experience in your life. I find myself deep into thought some days from a one word prompt, other days is seems like silly fun to me but either way, I am having a wonderful time interpreting these word prompts. I look forward each morning to getting a cup of coffee and sitting down in front of my computer and to see what prompt Ashley will have for me today.....
Knowing Ashley was taking a little break from prompting last week I began working on another art project called Get Your Art On, Check it out at www.tracibunkers.com. It's a 30 day project to make art, any kind and there are no prompts. Okay, by the Third day in this process, I discovered that I really like word PROMPTS which seem to give a focus or direction to creating a page. I know, this might sound a bit lame to some people, being prompt less (LOL, is that even a word?) but speaking for myself and left to my own devices (prompt less), I wander around the pages kinda willy-nilly. So here's a big thank you to Ashley for the daily prompts!
Here's some pages from the 30 Day Get Your Art On series:
Day 5: Push Beyond Your Norm. Sorry for the shadows on the page, it's been a crazy week weather-wise for photos. Continuing to work with stamped tissue paper and adding acrylics to the mix. Pushing Beyond the usual inks and color palette.
Day 6: Making Art with Bree. Brianne is my oldest grand-daughter, she is 3 yrs. old and loves to come to Mimi's house to "make art". We played colored pens, silk leaves and glitter glue, after she left, I made this page using some of the same materials.
Day 7: Morning Has Broken. When I photographing the background of this piece I noticed a shadow on the page that looked like a tree with branches, so I pulled out some papers to make a collage of the shadows. I'm not entirely happy with this but it is what it is for now, I'll go in and modify it later.
Day 8: What's That Buzz?? You might think the title has something to do with the Bees and honeycombs but actually it was about the buzzing noise I heard when working on this piece. We were having some electrical problems and the buzzing was the air conditioner trying to come on! Yikes! This page inspired by a journal prompt on Li'l Journal Project.
Come back and check out the Li'l Journal Project Pages later this week! Until then, GO.... GET..... YOUR..... ART.... ON!!!
