Drop the Excess Baggage

Standard

November 22, 2019

This journal page was inspired by the bold colours used by mixed media artist Nimah Baly (I love her work!).

Letting go of excess baggage allows us to embrace the fun, happy, and lighter side of life. If you’re worried about something you can’t fix, then it’s time to let it go.

Focus on the things that make you smile. For me, those things include animals, nature, good friends, and a good cup of coffee.

 

 

 

DLP Journal Prompt: Week 9

Standard

I’m currently playing catch-up with online journal prompts from Art to the 5th Academy for the Documented Life Project (2015). This is week 9.

Art Challenge: Using at least five layers
Journal Prompt: “Give Me a High Five”

Layers included collage, acrylic paints, intense ink pencils, stamps, stencils, paint splatters, doodles, calligraphy ink (gold – too bad it doesn’t show up in the pic; it’s really sparkly!).

Way Back When …

Standard

I’ve been keeping written journals for a very long time. Rarely did I insert anything artsy – maybe the odd newspaper article, magazine pic, or doodle. Once in awhile I was inspired to draw … as I did here. Just ink on paper, and colored pencils for the flowers. My inspiration here came from a book on Unicorns. I like Unicorns…
