I liked the way this image looked on a black gessoed page. Sometimes I find it hard to use images that are not in color. I added tape to make some borders around it.
This page was just random scraps of pink papers. I cut the silhouette out of scrapbook paper, using a magazine image as my model. I used a sharpie poster paint marker for the writing. She was fun to do.
The Quote is "We are the night ocean filled with glints of light" Rumi. I love this quote. This was from a greeting card that I dismantled. I had collaged all the purple papers at a different time.
In this one I had the stencil sprayed on but didn't like the background. I painted it with black gesso and added torn strips of paper from a calendar. I left some black visible so that I could add some journaling. I like how it turned out.
I used strips of sprayed ink pages, some washi tape for the background. I painted over the pink page with white so I could journal over it. I used some of the same scraps from the first page to make it more unified.
New Things This Week
I am starting two new courses this week that I am excited about. Connie Hozvicka is teaching a class called Workshops, creative Circles and Retreats. It all about learning to run your own events. It has some great guest speakers and is bound to be full of great ideas.
The other class I am taking is called Drawing and Painting What You Love with Irish Painter Pauline Agnew. I have seen some of the work coming out of this class and was truly amazed, More importantly after watching her video's it seems like Pauline is a fabulous teacher. I really think that I am going to grow as an artist with this class.
Do you take classes that will get you out of your comfort zone?
