MY NEW INSPIRATION or #prompt60index with Daisy Yellow Art

After I started the #icad challenge with http://daisyyellowart.com in June/July this year, and even FINISHED it, I was hooked on creating art journal pages for the last weeks, nearly every day.

Lately I am stuck or out of sync with the project. Sitting in front of my art staff not knowing where to begin, what to do and all I would start ending up in a mess.

Today I read a new post on fb of Daisy Yellow Art about the prompt60index and I felt drawn to it immediately. 

I looked for a journal or pages I could use for this project and found an long kept manuscript book, where I jotted down and pasted notes in about writing. I completed a course in short story writing yeaaarrs ago and started to collect notes and ideas in this manuscript. As there are more than half of the pages blank, I will use this journal for this new challenge.

Below find a few pictures of this book as it is right now and I will keep you informed of all my progress to fill in the blank pages in it in time.

Please feel inspired to go to daisyyellowart.com and see what inspiration you can get out of this beautiful blog and group.

For now: be inspired, have fun and create on paper what’s deep inside you. It has a healing side as well.

Lots of love

HOW TO CREATE AN ART JOURNAL PAGE or have fun

imageO
open any page in your art journal or use a loose blank page
add some circles of colour, I used ordinary watercolour, and clutch paper together, and more colour, clutch together again….
you can do that a few times with different colour until page looks good to you
hold page or book upright and add some blobs of colour to let it run down the page, turn upside down and do the same
this is how I create this page

image

cut items out of magazines or gift wrap

image

and glue onto page, I used home made modge podge [gel medium] but you can use any glue to your liking

image

add some stamps, I used a bought one, which I forgot to add into the pic, or use any object you can find to stamp onto page

image

stamp a frame around pages, you can use any medium, ink, water colour or any pens to do that, explore your own options, look what you have on hand or can find around the house, I use a piece of a mosaic sheet I could imagespare…image

cut out some quotes, phrases or words which compliment the right page and glue on the left page, you can also use word stamps, stickers or hand written wordsimage

now you can add more colour, stamps to the page

image

I used some templates, mine are cappuchino templates, and I used my finger to dab the paint on

imageimage

paint some more circles with brush, add some stamps with found objects, use whateveryou have on hand and as much as you feel your page needs

image

outline some items with different pens, white gelli pen, permanent black marker, golden gel pen, or use whatever you have

image

I also coloured over some paint with neo colour twisters
now you can leave the page as is or still add more
do whatever feels good to you

Have fun
Love and Light
