If you're not on Pinterest then, well...you probably have a very clean house. lol. Pinterest is such a time-waster, but it's a creatively-charged time-waster. It's great for inspiration. When I'm feeling stuck, I go take a look at art that I've pinned. That always jumpstarts my mojo.
This week I find myself with lots of "in progress" pieces...journal pages and cavases and tags that aren't done yet. Lately I will work on something a bit, and then move on to the next thing. I'm feeling unsettled and ancy, and it's showing up in my art.
This is a smallish canvas...love the colors & textures.It's not "done" to me...but inspiration hasn't told me how to finish it yet.
I'm honored to be teaching at the Revolution event in the Netherlands this coming March. Here are a few sneaks of my class projects! We'll be using lots of spray ink, paint, gel, and modeling paste. Fun! Visit the blog & sign up...can't wait to make art with you. Plus, Revlie just announced you can buy individual classes instead of entire days.
I adore Julie and her stencils from The Crafter's Workshop are fab, fab! I was given the Triangle stencil...and once I got started, I couldn't stop! I made lots of art journal pages (even more than I'm showing...you'll probably spot the triangle stencil on more pages in the coming week). Here's the stencil...you can get it in a 12x12 and 6x6 size. I have both & love 'em both.
I used my Stampington stamps on this page. This one looks like a paint store exploded onto my art journal, but hey, that's how I roll:
I cut a picture from a magazine & painted over it to make the figure for this page spread:
This one is grungy...I had blotted the triangle stencil after using it on another page. This is how it ended up:
Be sure to "hop" along to these fab blogs for inspiration!
I feel privileged to be part of "21 Secrets"...yay! Read all about it here--I'm in great company, the other artists are amazing.
Here's how Connie describes the workshop..."21 SECRETS is an annual online, self guided, Art Journaling workshop that runs for a total of nine months where Art Journalers receive the opportunity to dive into different techniques, methods, and approaches to Art Journaling from a family of diverse, passionate, professional Artists. Each participant is able to choose which order of the 21 classes they take and have an active online community to share and grow with.
