Hi everyone. Happy Friday. I'm here today with some end of the week art.
My first piece of art today is something new for this month's Inspired By challenge at Art Journal Journey.
It began when I was inspired by a piece of seaweed I saw on the sand at the beach.
I then took that inspiration and carved it into a stamp.
Yes, if this looks familiar I showed you this just a few weeks ago on March 7. I suppose this could also work for second on second.
I then stamped some of the seaweed with green acrylic paint on some watercolor paper.
I used watercolors to create the background. It felt very much like the ocean to me, so I used a combination of of stamping directly on the page as well as stamping and fussy cutting on some white paper. I ended up with this ocean scene which I am linking up to AJJ's Inspired By theme.
On one of my recent beach walks there was a lot of seaweed up on the beach, and some of them caught my eye.
You might see some more stamps inspired from a few of these seaweed views. Smile.
Since Easter is coming up this weekend, let me show you a tag I made back in 2015 with a spring and Easter theme.
I really like the bird on the bow at the top. I was busy that spring being inspired by tag making.
Here's the whole post: A Little More Bunny Hop.
Interesting that this post in 2015 was originally published on April 2. So 6 years later, here you get to see it again.
Have a great start to your weekend, and a very Happy Easter also if you celebrate. If you celebrate Passover, I hope you had/have a nice Seder celebration. And no matter whether you celebrate any holiday or not, have a great weekend.
And as always, thanks for visiting.
