2019 Artfully Inspired Life is a happening place right now. At least for me it is. Watercolors. I am most comfortable with these and that is what we used in February. And with this collage spread, my February work is done. For the most part. I expect that all year long I will go back and add tangles here and there throughout my journal. Joanne is teaching me some really cool things that I am adding into my arsenal. Hahaha! Yep!
The last lesson for February included watercolor ground, Schmincke, and collage. I was most challenged with glueing stuff down and keeping it in place. My sticker machine ran out of sticky, and my refill was a dud. So I have more on order. I reverted to my Scor Tape and it worked fairly well. And my Tombow tape runner for smaller pieces. I do love these watercolored roses I made on some scrap watercolor pieces.
Then there was this section. I love these little Dylusions Creative Dyary Die Cuts. They are so cute and work well in so many places. I forgot to add the antennae to my butterfly! Eek!!!! Gotta do that now.
I even save the catalog pictures that I think I might be able to use one day. And, hey! this one has a dragon, so of course I kept it!
These flowers were fun! I used a Tombow to do the drawing, I think I like them better with the black lines from my TWSBI fountain pen, so you may see more of those in the future.
Left side page. There is plenty of room to come back and add more tangles, or more quotes.
The right side page. I even used one of my Bamboo Mixed Media cards from Hahnemühle there on the bottom. I love it! That piece of Ukranian map (pretty sure that’s where it is from) came from a dear friend who was a missionary in the Ukraine – Coleen Franks.
So much fun! I will be doing this much more in the future. I love all the color. Of course I do! If you are interested in joining the class, it is never too late. I will add links just there at the bottom. I know Joanne would love for you to get involved in learning some new things. Now, back to book making. Thanks for being here!
