Today is week 7 for the Greeting Farms He-Art Journal challenge.
WEEK 7 - Every Cloud has a Silver Lining
(a cloudy concept)
Assignment: Create a spread or a page using clouds as your inspiration! This can be layering over your artwork with paints, creating transparencies, rubbing a little chalk over some elements... You can use cloud shapes, cotton balls, gauze, toilet paper, tissue paper, paper doilies, lace.... Use any stamps you want, colors, etc. Not necessary to use any TGF stamps, this is YOUR journal, do what you want cuz you rule that journal!
Here are my pages.
I found this lovely poem by Craig Nicholson. I think it goes wonderfully with this page.
I coloured the stamped images with my Copics...surprise, surprise ;)
I stamped the trees directly on the background paper.
A closer look at this sweet poem.
I also stamped the wind streaks directly on the blue cardstock.
I bought some sticky back canvas (artist trading card size) on our trip. I have never used it before and thought it would work on this page.
I put fiberfill behind the piece before I stuck it down. I think the dimension is fun.
Onto My Day:
I finished up some loose ends with my book work.
Did some banking and paid some bills.
Wayne and I picked up some groceries for camp.
Chatted on the phone with my friend, Deb. She said she bought some stamps from a lady on kijiji. Debbie is new to colouring stamped images. Sounds to me like she got some awesome ones....I'm so jealous .
That's about it for my exciting day :)
-That Kristy had a good 1st day of grade 11 yesterday.
-I was able to create for a bit today
-That we are heading off to our cottage tomorrow.
-That I have a friend that enjoys colouring and has some new stamps
What are you Thankful for today?
