Color Lovers Challenge Day 1

Featured

In case you didn’t read my earlier post, Jodi Ohl, a very talented mixed media artist is hosting a Color Lovers Challenge. It runs for the next 30 days until October 15th. Yesterday was Day 1, Summer Vibes.

When I think of summer, I think of the lounging on sandy beaches and enjoying the ocean with it’s beautiful colors of blue and green. So this was my creation in my Arteza 8.25โ€ x 8.25โ€ Watercolor/Mixed Media Journal. I added a quote by Wyland: “The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.”

You can still join if you’re interested. The rules are, there basically are none. You can create a piece of art of any kind, big or small, using colors of your choice. All you do is follow the daily prompts. The link to the list of prompts can be found on her Color Lovers Challenge page.

So join in on the fun!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Believe in Magic – She Blooms in Ink

Featured

I finished another segment in the online course from โ€œShe Blooms in Inkโ€ taught by the very talented artist, Tamara Laporte atย Willowing.org.

She’s painted in my Strathmore 11โ€ณ x 14โ€ณ Watercolor Journal. The quote reads “Magic is all around, you just have to Believe!”

This one was challenging because it was a limited palette, something that I don’t normally do. But I fell in love with her once she was done and hope you do too ๐Ÿ’–

Rosie Angel Watercolor Journal Page

Featured

My latest angel from my Strathmore 5.5″ x 8.5″ watercolor journal. Her name is Rosie. I tried limiting the colors in this one. I really like the iridescent blue that I used around the stars, in her hair and clothes. It has a beautiful shimmer. But looking at her, she reminds me of an Easter or Spring Angel.

What do you think? Would love to hear your feedback.

Have a wonderful week!

Art Journal – Dream Zentangle Pg 2

Featured

Earlier this week I shared myย first journal pageย with my “Dream” zentangle tile. This is the second part of the journal spread with a quote by Karim Seddiki that I thought went well with the Dream zentangle tile: “Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.”

Hope this quote inspires you in some way today!

Art Journal – Dream Zentangle

Featured

I made this zentangle tile a while ago and set it aside figuring I’ll find a home for it at some point. The journal page was started and left unfinished because I ran out of time and it too was set aside and forgotten ๐Ÿ™ Luckily I recently came across the two pieces and just had to make them work. So this is what I ended up with.

This page has everything going on from watercolor to acrylic paints, colored pencils, pens, markers, collage and more. You name it, it’s on here. To say the least it was lots of fun to make!

Stay tuned, because I’ll be posting page 2 shortly.

Hope you have an awesome week!
