THIS IS A VERY PHOTO HEAVY POST
Now that being said, onto my page 2 for the Journal 52 challenge. This weeks prompt is "Just Be". It brought to mind the still, quiet time of the mornings when I take my coffee outside (and feed the dog). It is a time of day (cold or sizzling hot) that I enjoy the most. It is the time of day I think about my to-do list for that day, meditate, pray and sometimes stand still and.........Just BE.
I started out laying in some Gelato colors, direct to paper......no Gesso, of a sun rise.
With a Baby wipe I blended in the colors (with Gesso it would have just wiped off) This is going to be done a number of times........so hang in there...grin!
It needed some rolling hills, so there was some shadows created, and adding some clouds.
Once again blending with a BW, and adding some highlights as I went along
Adding some dark green for a background for flowers
Blending again with BW
Adding flowers with a stencil and more modeling paste.
A closer look.
The placement of the words.
Added black dots to flower centers and the week number.
And here is the finished page.
A super fun page to create, I love messing with my Gelatos, it is a good change from all the inky messes I tend to make...... AND I also remembered to take pictures as I went along, ...... and the added bonus of a photo of each step......LOL
Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment so I can return the favor.
