This year I am enjoying
participating in Journal 52,
a friendly (and free!) art journaling group
with inspiring weekly prompts.
I've been keeping it simple and stress-free
by grabbing my favorite basic supplies
and not over thinking what I make.
These are my March pages.
Week 9: Color Swatch Inspiration
Just watercolors and one of my favorite gelly roll pens.
Week 10: Create for a Cause
I have a dream of making art for the blind
that is as interesting to view tactilely as visually.
This one used more supplies since I was trying to add some texture:
papers, acrylic paints, watercolors, gesso, and pen.
Week 11: Stars
One of my first experiments with gouache.
Week 11: Stars (I loved this prompt)
Watercolors, gelly roll black and metallic pens,
and a paper city skyline I glued on top.
Week 12: A Day in the Life of Me
Watercolors and gelly roll pen--again.
Week 13: How Does Your Garden Grow?
You guessed it! Watercolors and gelly roll pen.
