The Blank Page and How to Face It!
January 24 Art Challenge: Writing
January 24 (week 4) Journal Prompt: Words with Friends
This is where I went with those prompts . . .
I started by finding notes and letters from some of my online friends I share art with.
I copied them onto plain white printer paper so I could keep the originals.
(I have a pile of envelopes I've received on a side table and a tin that I save them in too).
I cut them out and glued them into my journal with a glue stick.
I inked the writing/the letters directly with Chalk Inks by Colorbox . . .
Then I sprayed dye inks over in a layered fashion, including some gold "shine"
spray by heidi swapp. I really just played until I got a look I liked.
I accented words with a pen, added words, added a vine and velvet leaves for connection.
I am still in touch with all of these special friends, I even went to visit Frieda last September in Scotland. Jo and Jewels and I exchange Mail Art and even though Sharon is so busy with work and her jewelry making, she still makes time to send me a note! Now that I am back on Facebook I am happy to say, I find it easier to catch up
with all of them - it's so fun!
