This was SOOOOOO much fun to do! I used to doodle like this all the time - making letters and filling them in with all sorts of designs and patterns. I wonder if I can find any of my old doodles in old notebooks stored at my mom's house. Hmmmm... the only thing different in my art journal is that I used water colors this time. I have never really used water colors before. It is very cool learning how they work. I can't get enough of this 'ART' thing. And the journal is so cool because it takes the pressure off. PHEW!
Hey, what do you think of my potato 'O'? It was originally supposed to remind me of the moon but the brown watercolor kind of got out of control and my kids think it looks like a potato. I kind of agree but I do like how her/his facial expression turned out. I'm surprising myself by what I come up with in this art journal. Very cool.
Check out Julie's (my teacher for the Art Journal Everyday class) blog today. She is inviting people to art journal everyday in December as their December Daily project. I think that is so cool because in yoga yesterday I was deciding that is what I am going to do for December Daily this year! I always want to do it - really I want to do Journal Your Christmas with Shimelle, but I am always too busy and never get any of it done, so then I tell myself the next year, I am not going to join in. I am going to pass, but then I get the prompts in my email box and the temptation is just way too much so I try and I fail every time rarely even producing more than one scrapbook page. But an art journal page... hmmm.... now that might be do-able. MIGHT! And now that I see Julie's challenge/invitation on her blog, I'm committing on a WING & A PRAYER!
