Finally the final page of the year. I have to say I am so proud of myself for completing this entire challenge. All 52 weeks.
The prompt for this final week was gratitude. I started the page with some spray inks in a variety of blue shades. To that I stenciled several different stencils using acrylic paint and gelatos.
I then stamped two stems on separate paper in a blue ink the. Colored them in using Neocolor ii crayons. I used a stamp to make the ladies head, coloring it with the Neocolor ii crayons. After gluing the lady stem to the page, I decided to make the other 'person' a heart symbolizing love. I colored the heart using my neocolors, added eyes, then decided to add wings to make my heart fly. I stamped a cut the wings out, deciding to leave them white. I glued everything down then added the words around the heart in a white signo pen ( where has this pen been all my life). The words say ' with love and gratitude we set you free. As a final touch I outlined the stems with the same white pen.
Here it is. My art journal for 2015. I am so pleased and proud of myself.
Most importantly I learned that to get better at art, I have to practice a lot. Also I learned it is okay to make mistakes. It's okay to dislike a page. Not every page has to be a masterpiece.
