2021 Topic 5: Find Your Vibe
Lynn has been exploring whether she has a style in this post. I think she definitely does, and she concludes that it's mixed media and bright colour. This really useful soul searching exercise (that's a great one for us all to consider) has translated into a wonderfully bright and happy layered art journal page.
Hi everyone, it's Lynn Good (Memories on the page) with you today, and I'd like to share with you an art journal page that I have created for the topic "Find your Vibe".
This got me thinking - do I have a "style" and I don't really think I do, but what I did realise is that mixed media and bright colour are what come easy to me.
I had no idea where the page was going to start - you know that "Break a blank page" problem! So I decided to do what makes me happy and I stamped some writing onto tissue using JOFY89 and JM10
I tore this up and adhered to my page using matte medium. I used a page that I had already adhered some coloured tissue and tissue stamped with JOFY98 stamp onto. Once the tissue was dry I randomly added some gesso using a spatula.
I stamped and fussy cut flowers from JOFY98 which I coloured with my favoured paints - Cherry Red and Zesty Zing. Once the paint was dry I highlighted areas of with coloured pencil as well as added pencil to the outside of the flowers to create shadow and the illusion of depth.
I stamped the sentiment from the set - JOFY98 and I felt it was how I was feeling at the start of the page - hoping it was going to work out! But generally if you go with what makes you happy (mixed media and colour for me) you can't go wrong :) .
I hope that you have found some inspiration to have a go at this topic - do share it on Facebook and Instagram.
