Happy Monday and new week to you.
Today I have a short post with a piece of art I created recently.
I'm sharing this journal page I made the other day for my "Let's Face It" challenge at Art Journal Journey. With butterflies and dragonflies, I must have summer on my mind.
I started my page by cleaning some paint off a brush on some watercolor paper. Once that was dry I attached this large sheet of Dina Wakely tissue paper. It had the faces and the leaves already on it.
I colored in the leaves and added some doodled as well as colored flowers. Then I used a black paint pen and added the dots all over my page.
The butterfly and dragonflies are from an Art By Marlene punch out book. For the cost of the book, around $5, and the fact that I must have had it for 2 years, I am still getting images from it. I think you'll see Art by Marlene images occasionally pop up on my journal pages as there's many left to use.
I decided my page needed a border. I used a stencil and a black sharper to trace and color that in. I spent an afternoon this past week tracing and coloring on several pages. Just like cutting and pasting, it can be so relaxing. (Not that my week had really been stressful.) I finished off my page with a sticker quote as well as some tiny foam dots.
There's been some terrific art over at AJJ so far this month. Thanks to those of you who've shared pieces. Remember there's still a bit of January left to join in if you feel inclined, and I hope to see you there.
Thanks also for visiting my blog today.
