Really? It's the first of August in Texas...everything is brown...brown leaves, brown grass, brown dirt, brown flowers and brown plants! And the last thing I wanted was to put something in my journal that was just gonna crumble and make a big-ass mess for me to contend with every time I open my journal.
Well, it finally hit me while I was at the store, walking by the flowers, that I could just get some flower petals and put them down. So that's what I did!
Using gel medium on a 7x10 sheet of mixed media paper, I laid down some rose petals in pink and yellow, making sure to leave some of them raised off the page, to give plenty of texture. Nothing fancy or difficult...just 3 ingredients!
I'll be honest with you....I did NOT have fun with this prompt. In fact, I would go so far as to say that if I ever have to do another prompt like this, I will vociferously, and respectfully decline.
Now, onto other things! So this was the last week for ICAD 2015 - and I managed to complete the entire challenge, creating 61 index cards of art for 61 days! I was so pleased! Here are the ones I created this last week:
Thanks so much for looking, and have a wonderful week filled with art!
