February Theme Layers You Will Love! February 21: week 8 Announced
Art Challenge: Repeating Elements
Journal Prompt: It's Worth Repeating
yes, I do love repeating images/colors in my work but I did not realize how much, until I did this exercise. And, I kind of had to force myself to start as it has been very busy, we've been sick with a virus and I am behind a bit on doing these challenges. . . . but when I did start, one thing led to another and I found myself just clicking along thinking about different ways to repeat what I was doing. I really enjoyed myself.
I started with this leftover scrap of paper. After I had used this stencil in another project and it was covered with wet spray ink, I pressed it against the scrap paper instead of wasting the ink and then saved it. This was how I started my journal spread.
Then look what happened! I used the stencil in different ways directly on my journal as well as covering the background area by spraying dyes or doing direct ink to paper.
Then I started choosing individual parts of the stencil to add, in different areas. I used a gold or a white marker to add flowers one at a time.
It's Worth Repeating!!
