Today I have something silly and fun to share over at Art Journal Journey for Neet's Type challenge. This page makes me happy.
I found this background in a pile of unfinished pages. I had done lots of colorful stenciling on the background, but that's as far as I had I gotten done on the page. I thought it was time to finish it.
There were white clouds stenciled on the middle of the page. I used a piece of acetate to trace them, and then I cut out the clouds out of the acetate and used those cut outs to trace the exact cloud shape on some printed magazine paper. Then I cut the magazine paper clouds out and attached them to my page. I will use my acetate clouds on some other piece of art at a later date.
There's lots of type in these clouds!
I found this lady in an Art By Marlene punch out image booklet. I thought she worked perfect so I added her to my page. I also gave her some sparkle and other details. Finally I used some sparkly pink letter stickers I had picked up on a discount rack to title my page.
I'm going to call her Gladys. Gladys looks like she is being a swim suit model. She's really limber too. Perhaps she is more of a yoga person. But either way she is a fun image.
A few weeks back a friend and I went to the sunflower festival at a farm in Lee, New Hampshire. I've seen plenty of sunflowers, but I've never been in a whole field of them before.
This festival has been on my bucket list for a couple of years now, ever since I saw a short segment on a local TV show about it. We went early in the day to beat any crowds, and besides, the field was big and it was easy to spread out.
I took a lot of photos because there were other things to see on the farm too. I'll have more to show you later this week.
Thanks for visiting.
