Thanks to Beverly at the http://artjournaling.ning.com/ I am back to art jounaling on a regular basis. I told myself after Kelly Kilmer’s class that I should be working on my own prompts. That choosing my own was the best way to work on finding “My Style.” But after the slump I have been in, I decided to get my mojo back any way I could and if it takes someone else’s prompts to do it, so be it. Some of the prompts strike a cord right away, some take a bit longer.
March 2nd Prompt: Credit cards
This prompt came at a very opportune time. Chase Bank, who took over after WAMU went belly up, had just sent me a replacement card for the WAMU card. So I had one to cut up for this prompt.
March 3rd & 4th: Blue and Doodles, respectively. Not much to say about this one, except the background is watercolors instead of my usual acrylic paints. The flowers are colored with watercolor pencils and/or Intense pencils.
March 5th & 6th: Past and Present.
Yes that little girl is me as a child. Since my mom passed, I’ve been going through old photo albums and I found this kid picture of me I wanted to use. Today was the perfect time to try a new method of image transfer.
I used an ink jet transfer method to get the image onto the journal page. after testing, I think I prefer the toner based method more. The water based Ink jet image is easier to mess up.
The Here and Now side was done with a stenciled image of me that I created a few months ago after taking Mary Ann Moss’ Stencilery class. I’ll probably use it a few more times because I like how it looks. :)
I’d love to hear what you do to get out of a creative funk.
