As I had mentioned, I flipped the journal cover inside out and did some really bright art on it. I'm so craving these bright summery colors!
I used craft paint to paint and stencil the journal covers then added my girlie art to the front with gel medium and colorful paper tapes and masking tape. This was so fun to do! I enhanced some areas with bright prisma colored pencils using a very heavy hand. I will add some writing and details in black. My next post will show more detailed pictures of the finished cover.
Also I did yet another doodle girlie to put in this summery up-cycled journal...
"Summer of Love"
She was done my usual way with a black liner pen and prisma colored pencils enhanced with some neon and white gelly roll gel pens. The colors on the original art are actually brighter than the photo here.
Yesterday I bought bright neon cerise and metallic sparkle chartreuse nail polishes. I did my toes in the cerise and my fingers in the bright neon limey chartreuse. I cannot wait for Summer! We have had a cold, wet, gray spring so far and I am sick of it!!! All of my art has been very bright to combat this depressing weather.
Art bombing update: Due to the very short nature of my trip and the presence of too many curious eyes, the graffiti art bombing has been postponed! I did try but conditions were not ideal. I will look for another opportunity in the future. I have put my graffiti tote in my truck so it will be handy for a quick hit. I have also decided to do stickers as they are more environmentally friendly and not permanently damaging. More to come in the future on this idea of street art.
It's only 11:00 and we are losing the tiny bit of sun we had to a new storm that's rolling in. I must go out and fire up my John Deere lawn tractor and mow the south 40 before the rain hits!
Think "Bright" and color up some cheerful art or Easter eggs to share this week! Happy Easter, Happy Spring!
Forever in art, Jessica
