I saw the current MFT Color Challenge #13 and dug through my gelatos to pull out come colors that matched as close as possible:
When I heard that Donna Downey was reviving her Inspiration Wednesday in 2015 toward the end of last year, there was no doubt I wanted to join. After watching the first video on Jan 7, I decided to watch some of her past IW videos to fill the void while waiting for the next one and was completely inspired by this one from 8.14.13.
Simply gorgeous - I have always loved watching her IW videos but have yet to actually apply the techniques. Well, I am trying to remedy that this year and do more mixed media in my art journal and enjoy the process rather than being caught up in the "I'm no artist" mindset that stifles me so often.
I am so glad I did. I absolutely LOVE this page. While I didn't follow her completely, for instance, I used the colors from the MFT Color Challenge and I used gelatos instead of acrylics, a different stencil, sponged on the black gesso, etc. You can definitely see the inspiration in my page and it got me creating (experimenting) in my art journal which is the point, right!?
I was looking for the perfect stamp to complete my page and found this one from The Greeting Farm. It was perfect for the colors used and just a positive way to finish it off.
I hope you liked a look into my art journal and I really do hope to share more (and try to post in advance to revive my mixed media monday blog post series idea!)
