Hi everyone. Happy Friday. The first couple of days of June are already in the books, and the first weekend of June is just about here.
I'm back today with some art to share.
Let me start with some more fish for you. This month Mia is hosting at Art Journal Journey, and her theme is Fish.
I decided to make a little book of fish which I'll share over the month, along with some other fishy art. I started making my little book with some watercolor paper that I colored with mostly blues and greens. I had to make it feel like water because where else would you find fish? And watercolor paints really do look like something as fluid as water is.
Then I made some marks with white ink and black Sharpie.
Above is the cover. I added a piece of ocean map along with 3 gold metallic paper fish. And if that page isn't enough fish for you, let me show you one more page while I'll am it.
When I retired from teaching and was cleaning out my classroom, I took down posters. I had one with lots of fish. For some reason I decided to keep it for a future art project, and now was the perfect time to use it. This page is made with some parts off the poster, white ink that is streaked on the page and then I added the details, as well as a stenciled arrow and some clear little stick on bubbles.
I'll have more of my book to show you another post.
I also wanted to share a tag for Wendy's Pockets challenge at Tag Tuesday. Sadly I didn't manage to join the last challenge because so many of my supplies for bows and buttons weren't accessible during the art space project.
Here's my pocket tag for this new challenge though.
I made my pocket with part of the packaging from something I had bought. I had the piece sitting in my scrap box, but I can't remember when or what I had bought. I only know it was from Paper Artsy because it says that on the back of the cardboard I used.
My tag's theme is what the boy becomes when he is a man. Here's the vintage image of what this boy becomes. I cut that image out of a sheet of paper that was stuck in the pocket for the first photo.
And on my tag is a couple of faces for Nicole's Friday's Face Off. I'm also linking up to GIllena's Art For Fun Friday.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
