I’ve been in a bit of a creative rut for a while. I’ve been writing and taking photographs, but I haven’t created an art journal page or any artwork in quite a while. The last art journal page I did was about a month ago before I went to Melbourne.
Kathryn – Collage Diva – posted her first prompt in the Creative Kindling Series on True North Arts. A prompt to get those creative fires burning. Well it worked! I’ve created my first journal page in a month.
This month on Michelle Ward’s GPP Street Team – Michelle is encouraging us to Make it Your Own. Taking products or ideas from other artists and putting your own creative spin on it. That’s what I’ve done here with Kathryn’s prompt. I took the prompt and used some of the ideas and then added my own.
I created my page using a brayer to apply yellow paint to the page and then I dry brushed the red paint – from Kathryn’s prompt. I omitted the tissue paper or painted papers that she suggested. Instead I used a stencil to create the dry-brushed flames. I then highlighted them with prismacolor pencils to give them more depth.
