Hi everyone. It's already Wednesday once again.
I'm here to share another page in Eileen's memory at Art Journal Journey. Heads up this is a pre-post. I received my second covid shot yesterday, and I'm not sure how I will be today. I'm going to be optimistic and think that I am A OK, but if I don't comment for a day or 2, it's because my optimism didn't actually pan out.
Do you ever feel like you are this black and white person in a colorful world? That's what inspired my page today.
Poor Jane has that feeling, stuck in a black and white vintage photo, back at the time when she wasn't even allowed to smile for the camera. I think that lack of smile was because of the long time it took to get the impression on the film they used. But it still must have been amazing to suddenly have a photograph of a love one rather than needing to sit for a portrait.
This page started in my drawing journal while I doodled one night watching TV. I really did not like the doodles. I decided I needed to do something, so I began with some white crayon scribble and then I used some very watered down acrylic paints over the background.
I continued by stamping some images in black. Then I added the girl. The page still needed something, so I stamped and fussy cut the flowers, as well as using some rub ones randomly scattered around the page.
I finally added the quote. This page is a bit of this and that, but I actually like it now. It's always good to salvage a page, isn't it?
This month Chris and I are hosting at Art Journal Journey in memory of Eileen. Her challenge was Inspired By.
Hope your week is going well.
