Friday is here. Hurrah! Hurrah! Does anyone have anything exciting on their weekend agenda? I'm hoping to get some yard work done, finish reading my book and squeeze in a little R & R as well as some art time.
I will just have to wait and see what comes up though. Sometimes weekends have a mind of their own.
So today I have a journal page for both Paint Party Friday and Art Journal Journey. Thanks to Eva and Kristen for hosting PPF!
This month's theme at AJJ is journeys, and in my imagination I was on an African safari. I think that would be a wildly exotic journey for certain. I would want to see giraffe's on my safari, so I made them the main focus of my page.
The background on my page was an experiment with gesso and spray inks. For some reason very little of the ink stuck to the gesso, so it created this lighter space where the gesso was and became dark where there was no gesso. I like how it created a frame for the page.
I will say the page looks better in real life than in the photo. I always seem to have a hard time photographing colors painted on red.
Anyhow, most of the page is hand sketched and painted except for the one tree on the Savannah and the one zebra which I stamped, fussy cut and added to my page.
Wishing everyone a nice spring weekend!
Thanks for stopping by my blog too.
