Hi everyone. Another week is flying by. Today (Thursday as I am writing this Thursday night), I wrapped up my first semester classes. I'm a little sad though; I just finished my microbiology class. Last time ever. That class was my baby that I created and developed. But, this sadness won't last very long. It is just the ending and all the goodbyes as I transition into a new semester. Tomorrow we have a mid-year teacher workday to get organized for the new semester, and then next week, I get 3 new classes. And next week we wrap up January also.Before we know it February will be here. Wow!
So today I have another page for Jo's Something New challenge at Art Journal Journey.
I made this skaters page in my winter journal. I was inspired by this image I had that included the 2 skaters you see here. It was a very vintage image, and I couldn't figure out how I was going to use it. And then I had the idea to make a more modern page and use the vintage people on it. That's what new (for me) with this page, the use of modern and vintage looking pieces together.
I really liked how I could make all these cool shapes with my ink pad (on a page I showed you this past Saturday)so I repeated it on the bottom of the pages. It reminded me of ice. I used a different blue inkpad to make some sky. Then I used scraps of paper to cut these triangular trees. The clouds are painted; it cut the skaters of of the image, and I painted the clouds.I also used a bit of Stabilo watercolor pencil around the edges of the clouds. Then I used a vellum postmark which I stamped with the posted lines, and I also used a few TH quote words.
Hope you like my latest page.
Thanks so much for visiting.
