Last week there was no weekly check in report about any daily Art Journaling, mostly because I didn’t have time to write it but also because I didn’t do much Art Journaling, at least not daily. I was away during the weekend and took a lot of photos that I am really happy with, I also did some diary writing plus doodling in my diary while at a very nice caf?!
I did use a few of the links of inspirations collected in week 2. I tried painting a copy of a fabric design (though not photocopying it), the red dots above was inspired by a Klimt painting (isn’t his beautiful paintings and those quilts inspiring?). This week I’ve coloured in the monster, now I think he looks more like an alien… The monster kind of went away when he got blue eyes and pink kissable lips… maybe.
I also followed Carla’s alligator tutorial using my watercolours! Layering with watercolours is new to me and my first try was not very well performed. I will have to practice. Though I rather like the alligator dog that came out from the exercise!
The rose was another try at free drawing with the paint, the black lines added afterwards… It looks nice, but not at all as I intended! Roses are a favorite, but not something I can draw very well. Will practice more this summer.
Lastly I wrote about the alligator dog, and did a collage on the right side. I’ve also printed my post Creative Ideas for 2011 and glued those ideas into this art journal for reference!
