This week Art Journal Challenge was wine! Easiest prompt ever! I love wine!
Not wanting a white page, I cleverly dribbled some wine on the page. It turned more blackish than I liked.
Easy Prompt, No Journalling
With the easiest prompt ever, I found myself on FRIDAY doing most of the work for the week challenge. The intent of this challenge was “art journal every day” with the goal of a finished product by Sunday. A few doodles daily. Maybe I should set aside a scheduled ten minutes to work daily? I still got weeks to figure this out.
This week I used some epherema, stickers, and markers, and oh, the spilled wine on the page to start it off.
Perhaps the challenge for next week challenge will be to “art journal” every day!
This was a good challenge.
I meant to paint the background, but ran out of time.
I meant to place music notes on my river of bars, but ran out of time.
I used paint, markers, crayon for this week’s challenge.
I wish I had “more time” to decorate the music notes-that was the plan. Oh well! On to next week!
Well, what does THAT prompt mean at all? LOL! I have no idea where I got these prompt ideas from-again!
League of Legends
On first Google try, LOL means League of Legends. Some sort of online game. I’m not a gamer, so I doubt I will try and represent the League. LOL.
I continue down the Google page-heavens, have I been invoking the name of Satan in vain?
“When we “laugh out loud” online, are we really praying to Satan, the prince of darkness himself? … According to the directive, which is meant to be shared “with Christians,” the classic and ubiquitous “LOL” acronym stands for “Lucifer our lord,” something the image’s creator doesn’t find funny at all”
Sock Monkey don’t care about LOL!
LOL LOL LOL
I used paint, stickers, a few markers for this week Art Journal Challenge.
Onto the next week!!
Favorite Book Character
Anne of Green Gables
My favorite book character is…Anne with an E of course! Anne Shirley, or “Anne of Green Gables” as she is more popularly known.
I didn’t read the Anne books until college. It was love at first site with Anne, with her “race that knows Joseph”. There is quite a collection of porcelain dogs in my household. (Both L.M. Montgomery and Anne owned Gog and Magog.)
Lucy Maud Montgomery
I’ve read all of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s “selected” journals. Her life, compared to her character, Anne, was a rough one. Her husband suffered from depression and maybe was bi-polar. Mrs. Montgomery seemed to mainly support the family and had many health issues of her own. I believe I have read most of her fiction books. If you like Anne of Green Gables, you might also enjoy the Emily of New Moon series.
My favorite book is Anne’s House of Dreams, although a bit sad. This is the book where she and Gilbert get married and start their life together.
Favorite secondary character
It’s Anne’s youngest daughter, Rilla, and her story of growing up in the WWI years. Her book is called “Rilla of Ingleside”. I just acquired a new book called “Readying Rilla” which is Montgomery’s manuscript of Rilla and the editing and changes that went into the manuscript.
What about the Art Journal Page?
I was so busy with Anne, the page became secondary! Most of this week was printed pics and a little stamping.
This was a fun week. I’ve now retrieved all my “Anne” books for another re-read!
I didn’t have any love for “Copy Something Famous”. I even went looking for other journal prompts. But I circled back to it. Of course I thought of copying the Mona Lisa. Then I thought about there was this dog image..Google makes it incredibly easy to google “famous dog” and boom! there he was! The Blue Dog!
Copy Something Famous
In the early 1990s Rodrigue’s Blue Dog Series, based on the French-Cajun loup-garou legend, catapulted him to worldwide fame. The Blue Dog was made popular by Absolut Vodka in 1992.
You know what? It was really interesting to learn about George Rodrigue, and the origins of the Blue Dog Series. I might need a Blue Dog Poster or Print for my home office…
I decided I didn’t need to fill in all the space around my blue dog. Or make bunches of said puppy.
I enjoyed making my own version of the famous blue dog. Onto Week Twenty-Five!
I went blue at first. Water is blue, right?
It’s blue in New Zealand!
Not very inspired this week. I liked the blues that I started with. When I added the magazines cut out, I think the spread went to crap.
No time to recover, just time to move on to a new week and new challenge!
I can at least say I did it!
This looks like something a six year old would create.
Then I thought about it. It’s my damn art journal. Who cares what it looks like?
What I am enjoying about this weekly challenge is that I am noting the week. 22 weeks into year 2018 already. It’s a good way to acknowledge the time change.
I’ve kept up with the challenge halfway through the year. Onto Week 23!
