So I have another piece for Art Journal Journey today. This spread began with the branches. What you can't see here is the depth from thick paint layers. I was actually making these on a Gelli printed background. I was trying to get them to pop off the background, but they never did. I guess I picked a background that was a little too busy and the color of the branches just blended too much.
No fear. I cut them out and made a page in journal for them. Then I added the orange leaves and sketched and painted these goldfinches.
I'm not crazy about how some of the green under color is sticking out around my quote, makes it look a bit smudgy, but I guess that's what happen when you decided to make the have a little more depth on just part of the spread. Next time I need to plan where I place my letters a little better I guess. :)
So I need to do a bit of cleaning today and then the hubby and I are out to run errands. Not very exciting, but needed. Today is our 28th wedding anniversary. I was thinking last night about what an adventure it has been all these years. The latest heart surgery news (yesterday) was very disappointing too. Even though he saw a dermatologist and she says the rash is gone and he should be good for surgery, the heart surgeon wants him to use the medicine for another 2 weeks and then go back and see the dermatologist again. I just wish they had said this in the first place. It would have made life a lot less stressful if they had said use the medicine for a month and then we'll check it. Its been a pain in the you know where. GRRRRR.
Oh yes, and a couple of books I have been reading.
So nothing else new here. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far.
