Monster Lips

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.

The alligator dog
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!

A pink doodle rose
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.

Art journaling in January

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!
