The other night I created a simple journal page. I grabbed my sharpie and did some quick writing all over the page which felt quite freeing! And then I added some watercolors over it in shades of purple and pink. I sprayed some water on it, then pulled some away with a paper towel because love the droplet effects that you can see in the above photo.
I find myself using only my iPhone to snap shots of my artwork. It is just so convenient. So much so that my Canon DSLR is collecting dust. Anyway I took an image of my journal page, put it in one of the iPhone apps, and the above image is the result. And I love it !! I am thinking about framing it to hang up in my living room. I am always altering my photography but it was super cool to alter an image of my artwork.
I then took it a step further . . .
I created this 6x8 mixed media piece with the same image. It was quick and super fun to create!! I used techniques I am learning in Julie Prichard's "Mixed Media Variety Hour" online workshop. You can check out the details HERE ! Now is a great time to sign up because she just announced a sale on all of the workshops offered over at her ning site The Land Of Lost Luggage.
I will be back tomorrow for Paint Party Friday!
