What do you do when the rainy, cold weather completely changes the plans you've made for the weekend? Head to your art studio, of course.
In my case, I was more in the mood for some art journaling than creating a new canvas or collage.
The journal pages begin with acrylic paint and glazing medium blended with a baby wipe to make a nice soft background. Add a few colors and some gesso, too, and a spritz of water and maybe a dab or two with a paper towel and I'm off and running.
Next add some rubber stamped images to create a bit of background interest.
I love to add prints made with acrylic paint and bubble wrap, so here goes. Now it looks like the background is ready.
The weather washout left me with LOTS of time at my art desk, so I can't really complain. On my journal pages I reflected on the many people I have met through my art, and the supportive community of artists that support and encourage my artistic endeavors. Most of you I will probably never meet in person; ours will remain a "cyber-friendship," but a wonderful friendship nonetheless. It's a precious gift....thank you.
