July Theme: Ephemera
Art Challenge: Using Old Maps, Letters, Tickets & More
Journal Prompt: Life…with a history
I tried out my new art supply, black gesso. For ephemera used a portion of the map of Singapore I got from our visit last May. Other materials used were oil pastel sticks, pens,a scrapbooking ticket and a bookmark from a friend in Manila. Simple, easy to make and very satisfying.
Art Challenge: Focal Point vs. Layering
Journal Prompt: Time keeps on ticking
Since I fell in love with the art of Paivi Eerola, I found myself practicing a few steps of what she shared in her blog. I used dr ph hydrus watercolors, black and white gesso, a stencil, inktense pencils, student grade colored pencils, white signo pen, micron pigma pen and a sharpie. Plus a quote about time from the net. The page was easy to make, the only thing that made it take sometime to do was the drying time. I did not bring my heat gun with me and had to settle for natural drying time.
Wonderful week everyone!
