GPP Crusade #28 – Portion Control

gpp28

Michelle Ward’s latest GPP Street Team Crusade is Portion Control - What does she mean by Portion Control?

“What do I mean by Portion Control?  I believe that part of something is more interesting than the whole.  It creates a sense of mystery, an engagement of the viewer to try to figure out what they are looking at.”

 I was a few days behind on my a prompt a day art journal pages that I am doing with Kelly Kilmer. So this evening, I thought I would kill two birds with one stone.

After preping the page with acrylic paints – I used my large alphabet stencil to stencil some letters onto the page. Some are complete, some are light and some are dark.

Day 1.

I started my artist journal and did my first page, following Kelly Kilmer’s prompts from her Online Class. I love it. I’m trying something new that I have always wanted to try, but really just didn’t know how.
