Happy Friday everyone. Its another cool and rainy one here in New Hampshire. We've literally had rain all week. The good news is it keeps the kids more mellow at school than if the sun was out and it was beautiful. Then they would all want to go to the beach. The bad news is that it is suppose to rain all weekend too. The bright side to that s it means I think it will be a good art weekend.
And I can stay inside where it is warm.
So I have a piece today I am linking to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Kristen and Eva for hosting. I am also linking to Art Journal Journey. This month's theme is journeys.
So my journal page today is called the tourist. I painted the mixed media face and palm tree on a Gelli printed paper, then I cut them out and put them down on this piece of tropical scrapbooking paper I had in my stash. When I cut out the fronds of the palm tree I cut inward to make individual leaves. Some of the leaves hang off the edge of the paper so you can see the carpet underneath the right side of the page.
I also stamped the Hawaii map and the Aloha word.
I still have a lot to learn about painting faces, but I don't think this one is too bad.
So I need to wish all those Mom's in the US (and any place else that celebrates Mother's Day this Sunday) a happy mother's day. And I wish you all a great weekend.
